It has been extraordinary to see delicate colours in the frescoes on the walls of the house of Augustus on the Palatine. It looked like they were painted perhaps two hundred years ago. The night he ordered a census be taken in Judea, he looked upon these frescoes before retiring to bed.

The sophistication of Roman society, their architecture, the durability of all they built. The original light green brass doors on the Temple of Romulus in the Forum, the original locks still functioning with keys today. The Parthenon, beautiful domed church now, but M. Agrippa fecit, in 27 BC.
