Italy, Pozzuoli with the Mole of Caligula



This is a Digital Image not an actual print
The ‘mole’ of Caligula is actually the remains of one of the several piles which supported the mole or pier of ancient Puteoli. It was from this pier that Caligula began his floating bridge of boats across the bay to Baiae.
