A well-preserved fragment of ancient via Tiburtina was discovered in Rome, which was dated back to the 2nd – 1st century BCE. The road connected Rome with Tibur (today Tivoli) and led to the northeast, totalling about 200 km.
The discovery came about during construction work being carried out to expand the modern road of the same name. The antique via Tiburtina was created on the order of consul Marcus Valerius Maximus in about 286 BCE.
