ANCIENTS MONTH: Not much remains from when Rome was a republic. Most of what we think of preserved ancient Roman ruins, comes from the empire or imperial period; with special emphasis on works created by the Julio-Claudio roman emperors. Or those from the line of Julius Caesar and ending with Claudius. Some say Nero and his short lived predecessor.
But know that there are still some treasures of the democratic republic still in existence in modern Rome and the larger scope of Italy.
