View of the courtyard that surrounds the Mausoleum of Romulus along the via Appia to the southeast of Rome.
The high walls visible beyond the grass are those enclosing the area. A more recent farm house is on the left and behind it the circular base of the Mausoleum of Romulus is visible—with an arched window.
Romulus was the son of the Emperor Maxentius (r. A.D. 306–312) who died in 309. The Temple of Romulus in the Roman Forum was built in his honor!
