Just Another Day in the Eternal City: Via Appia Antica

At noon today yours truly was crossing the Via Appia Antica at Via Ardeatine (in front of Domine, Quo Vadis?) and this was the scene.


  1. Ah yes that would be Rome all right!

  2. Pasce oves meas.

    How very appropriate!

  3. I had thought the sheep in the apse mosaic at Santa Cecilia in Trastevere were rather naively drawn... but now I see that the local breed of sheep do in fact look exactly like that! (As an Aussie, I'm used to seeing merinos, which have a very different shape - more wool, for a start.)
