In a letter to Atticus on the 29th of March in 49 BCE (A IX, 17) Cicero writes that Caesar has just visited him at his villa in Formiae, and that Caesar then headed to Rome for a meeting with the Senate on the 1st of April. The shortest route from Formiae to Rome is the Appian Way. It is thus probable that in late March 49BCE Julius Caesar and his retinue passed by on this stretch of the Via Appia.

This prototype was tested on location in April 2014. It was developed as part og the course MEVIT3810 at Dept. of Media & Communication, University of Oslo. The sitsim reconstructs about a 1 km stretch of Via Appia with an active user area from Romulus' Mausoleum to the third milestone. The simulation includes three periods: 320CE, 71BCE and 49BCE.
