It looks like an open book. How beautiful!

Quite something!
....peter:): i agree Tom these are quite something....petersmile
I took a quick look at your photos, I see that you are a fan of archeology, beautiful images. Of course the Greeks were the masters, but also the Romans were not less.
....peter:): i agree that the Romans were great builders Claudio and there is proof of that all across Europe... the Greeks started building like this a few centuries before the Romans....petersmile
