Mausoleo di Augusto it originally occupied part of the northern area of the Campo Marzio. It was started by Augustus in 28 BC. on his return from Alexandria, after conquering Egypt and defeating Marcus Antony. It was during his visit to Alexandria that he had the opportunity to see the Hellenistic-style tomb of Alexander the Great, probably with a circular plan, from which he drew inspiration for the construction of his own mausoleum. The monument, devastated by centuries of looting and removal of materials and definitively freed from excavations only in 1936, with its diameter of 300 Roman feet (about 87 m), is the largest known.
