The Probi bridge linked the bank of the Aventine to that of the Trastevere.
In the foreground the Ămilius bridge
, built in 60 BC,
linked the point of the Trastevere, right, to the Forum
Boarium and Olitorium, on the left side.
Another bridge was built quite close to the Ămilius bridge, it was the
Sublicius bridge. This bridge was the oldest bridge of Rome and was made of wood.
This bridge had a religious particularity, the name Pontifex comes from
the religious obligation that these priests had to maintain or rebuild this bridge.
The Cestius bridge, on the right, and the Fabricius bridge,
on the left, link the Tiber Island to the mainland.
They are still nowadays at the same place. Only the Cestius bridge had to
be rebuilt in travertine blocks. At the end of the Tiber Island was
the temple of Ăsculapius (Roman god of medicine).
This temple would have been erected in 291 BC and became a cure place.
At the bottom of the picture is the Agrippa bridge
, that went over the Tiber,
leading to the Aurelian city Wall
on the other side of the river.
The second bridge is the Aurelius bridge
The Nero bridge
, in the foreground, linked the west side of the Campus Martius,
on the right, to the road that led to the Vatican valley,
where there was a necropolis (cemetary), and the Circus of
Caligula and Nero (the future site of the Vatican).
The Ălius bridge that links the Campus Martius (Cornelia gate) to
the Hadrian’s Mausoleum (today the Angel’s Castle).
