The three columns in the center of the foreground are the remains of the Temple of Jupiter Tonans - on the left stands the Arch of Septimus Severus - on the right are the seven columns of the Temple of Concord - near to the centre of the forum is seen an isolated column erected in the seventh century in honor of the Emperor Phocas - to the right of this are three columns the remains of the Temple of Castor and Pollux, and rising above this are the gardens now covering the ruins of the celebrated Palace of the Caesars. In the extreme distance is seen the Arch of Titus, and to the left of this a small portion of the walls of the Collosseum. the avenue of trees on the left of the picture marks the course of the Via Sacra."
