  • Rightly so, because places and things they serve, if necessary, the use of which requires ... without too much if or but. But if those who preceded us had been able to even imagine the desecration, the Treasury plundered, the destruction of sacred places and objects left behind after the life ... No exception to this rule is the tomb of Annia Regillia, of noble family, wife of the rich and famous Herodes Atticus. A brick monument, in the green heart of the Valley, also known as "Temple of God Redicolo", which, according to legend, a place holy to the God who protected the back of Romans in their city. Unfortunately, it was used as a barn for centuries, thereby affecting the elements related to the original function. But it is still here, thanks to whom he looked after until today.

  • Among the best preserved tombs, then even more interesting from an archaeological point of view, it imposes a walk on via Caffarella. Unfortunately at present the monument is not accessible to the public at its core, for restoration. A rectangular brick-built two shades, has a low podium and tripartite outer faces by pilasters, with framed Windows, entablature to shelves and eardrum. Classic literature mentions a place, sacred to Cybele, where the River (torrential so impetuous) flows into the Tiber. well in that place that was supposed to be charming, stood the estate owned by Herodes Atticus, rich character of the Imperial period; in a valley you can still see the remains of a sepulchral building polychrome terracotta, that scholars identify the tomb of Annia Regilla, but in the past, for centuries was called the Temple of the God Redicolo. Annia Regilla was the wife of Herodes Atticus, which had brought the whole estate.

  • Obviously not referring to Annia Regilla because she was the Queen of the House as a marble slab refers to her that was found not far from this tomb dedicated to her, namely the Pago Triopius. The monument was erected by her husband Herod Atticus that some complex of guilt or desire to muddy the waters did. Then a fortiori we fall in mental disorder in title and must be addressed exclusively to him. Violent and irascible character, was accused of killing his wife, who belonged to the family of the high Roman aristocracy of Years to take possession of his property. Then, the dedication could be interpreted as an attempt to Erode self-rehab to save face but not only, because still had to maintain good relations with the emperor Antoninus Pius and wife Annia Faustina was a relative of Antoninus. It is certainly known to history as a "screen", as they say in Rome, and not a little scoundrel. After this framing of family relationships and Imperial, it seems almost a sacrilege to move the monument, but a tribute to the beauty of its lines is necessary. Especially since it is built entirely of brick with an excellent and innovative construction technique so as to represent an evolution in Roman sepulchral architecture, bustling by using bricks of two colors: the walls are yellow while the architectural elements are red. The building according to the Tomb Kings Temple has two floors placed on the podium quite high: the bottom floor housed the funerary cell while the upper one was dedicated to funeral ceremonies and the steps to access it was on the East side. The outer walls are diversified: the most adorned is the southern and is marked by two semicolumns and pilasters and a window, while the North and west sides while taking up the scheme are much simpler. Besides this tomb Herod Atticus devoted himself to wife and other parts of the Pago Triopius mentioned above, always in the wake of attempts to "reaccreditation".
