Columna Miliaria .
Augustus, Emperor of Rome, 63 B.C.-14 A.D.
The Columna Miliaria was built by Augustus in around 20 BC and was called the Milliareum Aureum or Golden milestone. It bore a bronze tablet with various destinations and the distances over Roman roads from the city of Rome. This column, considered a point of convergence of the great roads, probably stood between the Rostra and the Temple of Saturn, but its foundations have not been found.
The verso of this leaf has text in three languages with the page title in Italian: Colonna Milliaria.
