New rostra.

Rome, Roman Forum

Description:
Rostra is the platform at the Forum from which political orators delivered speeches before Romans. The name came from rostra — the bow part of a vessel. The front side of the platform was decorated with the rostra of six ships (captured by Romans in the war with Latins in 338 B.C.).
