Below the representation in the printing plate signed, dated and inscribed: "A. C. Dies f Romæ 1794 | Villa Mecenate". The artist saw it from the west, from Ponte l'Acquoria. Beyond the hill is the city. The cascades of the Anio, which partly flow under the ruin, are largely covered by a dense tree population that no longer exists. Since the beginning of the 19th century there was an iron factory in the ruins..
