Athens remembers the Emperor Hadrian as a friend and benefactor 1900 years after his reign. His Library stood to the north of the Acropolis in a space now crowded in by modern Greek life. The Manastikaki train stain is just off the bottom left of the photo. The narrow lane running up the left side from the domed building is a tourist market. The official AEK Athens store is at the upper left corner. If you explore the area on Google Street View it will give you a strong sense of how the site is an archaeological excavation -- the surrounding streets are a storey above it. Source.
These gold sheets, discovered in Tuscany, contain a dedication to the goddess Astarti written in Phoenician and Etruscan, two of the lesser studied languages of the ancient Mediterranean. Source. Learn more about Etruscan.
Reading Ammianus Marcellinus has got me curious about the obelisks of Rome. This one is the Obelisk of Antinous, which the Emperor Hadrian commissioned in remembrance of his drowned sweetheart around 130 AD. It was carved in Egypt and delivered brand new to Rome, so it doesn't count among the ones taken from Egypt as loot. It's also known as the Pincian Obelisk after its location on the Pincian Hill. Read its history at the excellent Following Hadrian blog.
