Signed, dated and inscribed: "C. Reinhart fec Romae 1797 | Vicin' al Circo di Caracalla". In this sheet Reinhart's preference for the picturesque of ruinous, vegetation-covered walls is expressed. However, the name is not correct. It is probably a remnant of the Circus des Maxentius on the Via Appia at the gates of Rome..
