Fine example of Halma's map of the Capitoline Hill in Rome, the center of Roman rule and democracy, after which Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., is assumed to be named.
The difference between the upper and the lower representations is not entirely clear, it may be that they both represent the Hill at different points during its classical history.
The maps are surrounded by neoclassical Roman designs of the style popular on engraved maps of the period.
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.
