Map of Ancient Rome
This map shows the greatest extent of the Roman empire
The areas highlighted in yellow represent the regions
under Roman rule. The emperors from 96-180 AD built a strong government,
extended the boundaries of the empire, and did much to improve the beauty
of Rome. After Aurelius died in 180 AD, frequent frontier attacks
and plague weakened Rome, beginning its downfall.
