Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 6.875 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Psalms, xlvii: 8.)--'God reigneth over the heathen : God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.' We learn from history that wicked men are no less under law than righteous men. The laws of God which wicked men violate destroy them. [sic] while the righteous are preserved by observing them. This arena of the amphitheater at Puteoli is a very good illustration of the wreck and ruin which have come to the fame and the fortunes of the men who built it, and found, as Nero did, upon its arena, a scene for wild and unbridled actions. Puteoli is rich in historic associations. Scipio sailed from this place to Spain. Cicero had a villa here, and here Nero planned the murder of his mother. This was the famous watering place of the rich and luxurious Romans." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
