« Aquć ductuum in vicinia admirandć visuntur reliquiae, tanti in latitudinem & altitudinem spatii, ut tres equites vnŕ ingredi possint : Romanorum indubič opera. »
= “Nearby, one can see the admirable remains of an aqueduct, sufficiently high and wide that three horses abreast can pass through it; it was certainly constructed by the Romans.”
