Via Appia Antica

By Andrew Nip & Jacky Savory

Roads during the Roman Empire allowed for the main means for communication and economy throughout the empire and the road network that spread out from Rome was extensive. By Roman law, the burying of the dead was not allowed within the city walls and as a result there are a number of tombs and catacombs that are along many of the roads, including the Tomb of the Scipios, Catacombs of S. Callisto and the Sant’Agnes Fuori le Mura.
