Campo Marzio database log
I started to draw the spiral colosseum today, and it is going much quicker than I imagined. Will very likely have it complete at the end of the next two hour session.
Over the last two day I have completed all the circuses in the Campo Marzio by merely adapting the Hadrian/Domitian circus.

more reenactment than I thought
Apparently there was an earthquake at Nicomedia/Izmit on 24 August 358 AD (that's approx. 20 years after Constantine died there).
The last [remaining] imperial artifact of ancient Rome

Sarcophagus of the Empress Maria
Burial of the sarcophagus containing the remains of Maria, the first wife of the Emperor Honorius, occurred circa 400 AD within the Mausoleum of Honorius, a structure then newly attached to the south transept of the original Basilica of Saint Peter.
