Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, xxv: 21.)--Tiberius was Emperor of Rome from A.D. 14 to A.D. 37. His house on the Palatine hill helped to form the manifold and massive series of structures which all together constituted the palaces of the Cæsars. When Tiberius ascended the throne of Rome, Christ was ten years old, and was crucified just a few years before Tiberius died. His house on the Palatine is built of brick, and is one of the ruins that inspired a part of Byron's celebrated poem, 'Childe Harold.' Tiberius was the Roman emperor who from his resort near the city of Pompeii wrote to the Roman Senate the despairing words: 'May all the gods and goddesses damn me a thousand times worse than I am damned, if I know what to write to you.' All the emperors of Rome were called Caesar. The emperor referred to in Acts xxv: 21 is Nero."
Excavated ruins with a church tower in the background; a row of arched openings appear in a row in the middle of the photograph
