Antony and Cleopatra (84 page)

vicus
A city street or less important road than a via. A city street going uphill was a
clivus.

villa
A man’s country estate, incorporating a vast residence and peristyle garden. The old Getty Museum in Malibu, California, was a brilliant reconstruction of Julius Caesar’s father-in-law Piso’s villa at Herculaneum, and was a true wonder of the world. I deplore its closure, as no villa exists anywhere in Europe that is not in ruins. Our own times are the poorer for its lack.
