The Meta Sudans was a large fountain that stood near the Colosseum. It may have been built by Domitian in 96 AD. The name comes from the sudans, which describes the jets of water from the meta, which was a goal in the circus. Though no longer standing, it is represented on a coin of Alexander Severus. It may have still been partially standing in 1743.
The verso of this leaf contains text in three languages with page title in Italian: Meta Sudante.
