Naumachia the name literally means “naval battle.” In fact, once it was believed that the monument was a water circus, built by the Romans to the representations of naval battles.
In fact, the monument is a great nymphaeum with niches, that is a monumental fountain with water features. Roman structures were used as foundations for modern homes.
