Antique engraving featuring views of the Roman Forum, and two churches in the forum: the Church of Santi Luca e Martina, and Santa Maria Nova (now Santa Francesca Romana).

The view of the Forum, after a drawing by Lievin Cruyl, looks southeast from Capitoline Hill towards the Colosseum.  In front of the Temple of Castor and Pollux, cattle are depicted in the Campo Vaccino, the cow field that took over part of the Forum for a few centuries. Behind the Curia lies a row of houses.

The views of the two churches are both after engravings by Giovanni Battista Falda.


This map was republished by Pieter van der Aa in his Galerie Agreeable du Monde. This later state can be identified by the addition of the pagination just inside of the lower right platemark.
