View looking up from the base of the interior of "Cicero's Tomb." Note the column that supports the cone—that is partially visible at the top of the image.
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).
