Photo of the Week

A Timeless View...

This photo of Piazza Navona in Rome was taken by Harvard University Professor Annewies van den Hoek, who teaches ancient Greek and Latin and specializes in the texts of Clement of Alexandria (among other things). 

Piazza Navona is famous for its elliptical shape, the result of a much earlier structure that lies beneath it: the stadium of the Roman Emperor Domitian, built around 80 CE! Now, the Piazza is graced by Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Four Rivers Fountain and is a wonderful place to see street performers, have a gelato, and relax amid the hubbub of central Rome.

Your photo could be featured here too!  Submit your best photo of anything Classics related here! Every week we will select a photo from your submissions and feature it as our 'Photo of the Week.' Many thanks to Professor Van den Hoek for sharing her beautiful image.
