Mons Ianiculus is second tallest of the Hills of Rome, but is not technically one of the seven hills, as it lies outside of the boundaries of the ancient city. Janiculus refers to the cult of the god, Janus. One of the landmarks noted on the image is the Mammea Sacellum or shrine of Mammea. This may be the mother of Alexander Severus.
The verso of the leaf has text in three languages with the page title in Italian: Monte Ianicolo, e sacello di Mammea.
Leaf 30 Recto and Verso.
