Endurance – Courage – Hope
In episode five of our online exhibition "Ingenious inventions – Innovative ideas", we'll take a glimpse into the lives of everyday heroes from the ancient history of technology!
Antonius the town warden of Aquincum
No one likes it if the streets are dirty or that the roads are full of potholes, and certainly no one likes to be cheated at the market. It was no different in ancient Aquincum. In the Roman predecessor of Budapest there were dedicated officials to take care of this. They were called the aediles. In this instalment of our blog we will meet them and also come across once again the prominent town councillor M. Antonius Victorinus.
