Articles (Architecture)

I encourage you to send articles and point out any corrections or inaccuracies.

Philopappos Monument

At first, the Acropolis in Athens is associated mainly with monuments from the times of ancient Greece. But in the Roman period, in the years 114-116 CE, a tombstone monument to Gaius Julius Antiochus Epiphanes Philopappus was built.

Torre Annunziata and Villa of Empress

The small village of Torre Annunziata is located near Pompeii. Most tourists who visit the ruins of ancient cities pass this place completely unaware of the treasure hidden there.
