View of the ground floor of the interior of the base of the "Tomb of Cicero." The partially-in-view column on the right helps support the cone above this square base.
This funeral building is located 1.5 mi. northwest of the Italian city of Formia on the via Appia—about 40 mi. northwest of Puzzuoli/Naples. It is dated to the second half of the first century B.C. It is said to be the funeral monument erected in memory of the orator Cicero (106-43 B.C.). Since it is on the via Appia, Paul would have passed by it on his way from Puteoli to Rome (Acts 28:11–16).
