87. lappuse - Rome, marks the site of a gate. On the other side of the knoll of the citadel is a cave, with signs of artificial cutting in the rock, being a sepulchre under the walls. There was evidently a gate also in the hollow which runs from the platform of the city to the junction of the Aniene and the Tiber, where there is now a little islet. Probably there was another gate...
14. lappuse - Lucus erat, quem medium ex opaco specu fons perenni rigabat aqua. Quo quia se persaepe Numa sine arbitris velut ad congressum deae inferebat, Camenis eum lucum sacravit, quod earum ibi concilia cum coniuge sua Egeria essent.
71. lappuse - Davy made some curious experiments on the process by which the water in these lakes continually adds to the rocks around, by petrifaction or incrustation. He says, that the water taken from the most tranquil part of the lake, even after being agitated and exposed to the air, contained in solution more than its own volume of carbonic acid gas, with a very small quantity of sulphuretted hydrogen. The temperature is 80 degrees of Fahrenheit.
114. lappuse - Capena grandi porta qua pluit gutta Phrygiumque Matris Almo qua lavat ferrum, Horatiorum qua viret sacer campus et qua pusilli fervet Herculis fanum, Faustine, plena Bassus ibat in reda, 5 omnis beati copias trahens ruris.
71. lappuse - ... its own volume of carbonic acid gas, with a very small quantity of sulphuretted hydrogen. Its high temperature, which is pretty constant at 80° of Fahr., and the quantity of carbonic acid that it contains, render it peculiarly fitted to afford nourishment to vegetable life. The banks of travertin are every where covered with reeds, lichen, confervae, and various kinds of aquatic vegetables ; and at the same time that the process of vegetable life is going on, the crystallizations of the calcareous...
363. lappuse - ... of the Theban kings: their eyes are very long; their hair is bushy and black; their limbs lank and slender; and the facial line, instead of running like that of the Greeks, nearly perpendicular, projects remarkably, so that in the outline of the face they bear a strong resemblance to the negro, or to the Ethiopian figures of Egyptian paintings. They wear round their ancles rings as ornaments, and armlets on their arms. Shawls of oriental patterns are also worn by both male and female. Many of...
54. lappuse - Murray's Handbook for Travellers on the Continent; p. 297. ed. 10. (46) The result of the personal observations of Mr. Laing Meason, who is stated to have been long practised in the sinking of mines in Scotland, is given by Sir W. Gell, ib. p. 30. ' The tufo (he says) has all been cut with a mallet, and a chisel one inch in breadth, as the marks show. As it would be difficult to dispose in any manner of more than four workmen at one time in this cavity, it seems scarcely possible that so great a...
88. lappuse - ... side of the Acqua Acetosa, and another opposite ; and from these two gates, which the nature of the soil points out, one road must have run up a valley, tending in the direction of the original Palatium of Rome ; and the other must have passed by a ferry toward Veil, up the valley near the present Torre di Quinto.
351. lappuse - Gell, in his recent work on the Topography of Rome, ' whether some antiquities decidedly Egyptian, said to have been found at Corneto, were really discovered there or not. Certain geese, alternating with little figures in the attitude of prayer, and forming a border in fine gold, seem evidently Egyptian.
