20/4/16 – Esquline [Day 1]

No post from the 19/4/16 as we had a free day!

Today we visited a rare Compital Altar preserved in the basement of a house in Via S. Martino ai Monti. This shrine was dedicated to to the Lares Compitales, the gods of the crossroads. The marble inscription references the Lar of Augustus.
