geography[edit]

I have chopped out: "in order to supplement the Aqua Marcia, and the later the Aqua Claudia when required". The Marcia and Claudia supplied Rome, the Augusta supplied the Bay of Naples. Naples and Rome are about 200 km apart. I doubt whether even modern water engineers would consider shipping water from Naples to Rome. -- RHaworth 04:09, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorted! There were two aqueducts with the same name! I am just about to go on hol to Naples - I come to Wikipedia for information and find I have to supply it myself! -- RHaworth 04:26, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Misenum image[edit]

I have reverted the latest edit because Misenum was the terminus of the aqueduct. The image is not unsourced, as the caption is clearly labelled. Peterlewis (talk) 05:59, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I have reverted yet again: there must be a vandal at work here. The picture of the port at Misenum is clearly relevant to the article since this is where the aqueduct ended.Peterlewis (talk) 13:42, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
