The reclining effigy of Devereux Plantagenet Cockburn 1829 - 1850, I wonder what his dog's name was? 

Pyramid of Caius Cestius

Pyramid of Caius Cestius

The white marble pyramid was built as a mausoleum for the Roman Magistrate, Caius Cestius 12 BCE. We are looking at it from inside the walls of the Cimitero Acattolico, or Protestant cemetery. When Leo and I were there the green lawn was thick with purple violets. Behind the Pyramid can be glimpsed the tower gate of the ancient Aurelian wall.
