Portasalaria

This gate, adorned with lovely bull skulls, was originally an arch built by Emperor Augustus at the point where three separate aqueducts passed over the Via Tiburtina. Later, when the Mura Aureliane (Aurelian Walls) were being built, engineers decided to incorporate the arch to save money and time.
