Artistic Interpretation Of An
Apatment Building In Ostia...
The beautifully preserved ruins of Ostia lie twenty miles from Rome, in the meadows between the Tiber River and the Tyrrhenian Sea. It was founded, probably in the 4th century BC, as a military colony to guard the river mouth against seaborne invasions. Later, during the centuries when virtually all imports reached the Capital via the Tiber, Ostia gained prominence as the domestic landing for cargo boats. By the 2nd century AD, it had become a flourishing commercial center inhabited by upwards of 100,000 people, whose apartment buildings, taverns, and grocery shops are still intact. - initaly.com

...And How It Looks Like Today.
As magníficas ruínas de Óstia se encontram a 20 milhas de distância de Roma, entre o Rio Tibre e o Mar Mediterrâneo. Ela foi fundada provavelmente no quarto século antes de Cristo, como uma colônia militar para guardar a foz do rio de invasões pelo mar. Depois, durante os séculos, quando tudo chegava à Capital através do Rio Tibre, Óstia ganhou importância como atracadouro para navios de carga. Por volta do século II depois de Cristo, Óstia tornou-se um centro comercial florescente, habitada por mais de 100.000 pessoas, cujos edifícios de apartamentos , tabernas e mercearias ainda estão intactos. - initaly.com

Este modelo representa um edifício de apartamentos romano em Óstia. Ao ser escavado, o primeiro andar ainda tinha água corrente.
