"This Aqueduct was commenced by Caligula, A.D. 36, was continued and finished by the Emperor Claudius, A.D. 50. It was forty-six miles in length. For a course of about thirty-six miles it was subterranean, and for the remaining ten miles it was carried over arches. Of this magnificent work, a line of arches no less than six miles in length still bestride the Campagna, forming the grandest ruin beyond the walls of Rome."--Murray. [P. 8.]
