Via Appia (Olive/Azure)
Via Appia (Olivewood/Azure)
The Roman magistrate Appius Claudius Caecus began and finished construction of the first section of Via Appia or "the Appian Way" in 312 BC.
Eventually stretching from Rome to Brindisi, the road was meant to improve the mobility of Roman troops as they moved south of the capital in an effort to maintain greater control over central and southern Italy and would eventually become an essential trade route in the region and earn the nickname Regina Viarum or "Queen of Roads".
