5.13.17 Celimontana 1

The obelisk at the Villa Celimontana is believed to have originally been set at the Temple of Isis in Rome. It formed a pair with the obelisk in Piazza Rotonda in front of the Pantheon. It is now a bit isolated, but in a very peaceful park setting compared to the traffic circles and busy piazzas where most of the others are located.
