September 9, 214 (or 215): Roman Emperor Aurelian was born. His rule lasted from 270 until his death in 275.
The map was created by Josephus Lugli, a topographer, and Italus Gismondi, an archeological draftsman. The map shows ancient Rome in gray and black laid over modern Rome (circa 1949) in buff and green. This map demonstrates how much is known about ancient Rome.
