Gallery Label: 
Constructed ca. 27 B.C., this bridge carred the Via Flaminia across the Nar, a tributary of the Tiber in southern Umbria. The dates 1860-1862, inscribed subsequent to the actual execution of this drawing, indicates a broad working period for this study. It was done, however, in one sitting and not over a period of years, as may be deduced from the inscription.
