An ancient pyramid-shaped tomb built for Caius Cestius (ca. 18-12 BC), a magistrate and member of the Septemviri Epulonum. The tomb stands at the fork of the ancient Via Ostiensis and was later incorporated into the city's fortifications.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
