Porticus Aemilia

A view from the direction of the Colosseum out toward the Esquiline Hill. As we can see here, not all of imperial Rome was an urban sprawl. Even in the fourth century there remained areas of greenery, fields and trees.
The large structure in the bottom left corner of the image is the Baths of Trajan.
The aqueduct is the Aqua Claudia. Look very closely and in the upper right hand corner you can make out the Castrensian Amphitheatre along the city wall.
