Roman road Via Traiana. Photo was taken in the ancient city of Egnatia, in the south-east of Italy. The road was created during the reign of Emperor Trajan in 109 CE and was intended to shorten the distance between Brindisi (Brundisium) and Benevento (Beneventum). Strabo reports that the new road made it possible to shorten the distance between the cities by a day.
