As the reverse Triumphal Way proceeds beyond the Porticus Philippi there are no direct references to the Rome's Pagan - Christian inversion, however the theme of inversion itself is present. The long wall of the Horti prius Pompejani dein Marci Antonii, the Gardens formerly of Pompey and later of Marc Antony, which runs parallel to the Triumphal Way comprises a series of colonnaded niches which alternate between being on the inside wall and being on the outside wall. In a similar fashion, the structure supporting the stands of the large Stadium along the Triumphal Way comprises alternating series of columns and walls in both the long and short direction. In both cases, Piranesi employs simple plan formations that subtly enhance the Triumphal Way with emblems of inversion.
