The Septizonium was a five-story monument, incorporating exdrae, that was inspired by theatral architecture. It may have served as a monumental fountain or nymphaeum. Its topographical placement at the intersection of the Via Triumphalis and the Via Appia may have been part of a Severan re-focusing of Rome's topography.
