The "Villa of the Antonines" 2013
Archaeological Field School
June 30-July 27, 2013
Welcome to the website of the “Villa of the Antonines” Project!
This archaeological field project in Genzano di Roma, Italy, now in its fourth season, will continue to explore the remains of a Roman imperial villa located close to Rome, at the 18th mile of the ancient Via Appia in the Alban Hills region. Based on literary references and the discovery in the 18th century of marble busts of imperial figures (now in the Capitoline Museums), the villa is believed to have been the property of the second century CE imperial family of the Antonines. Our current work at the site is focused on an amphitheater-like structure near the baths that is filled with mosaic tesserae and fragments of luxurious, imported marbles.
