Appian Way

Appian Way (Lat. Via Appia), one of the oldest and most famous of Roman highways. It was laid down by Appius Claudius Caecus in 312 B.C. as far as Capua; Julius Caesar carried it farther, and Augustus completed it to Brundusium, the whole length being 350 miles. Horace made his well-known journey along it (Sat.-pass), and Statius describes it as Regina Viarum. The remains may still be traced, especially near Terracina, and part of it has been restored.
