Square Tops #23: The Oculus

The Eye at the Top of the Pantheon

The Oculus, The Pantheon, Rome

Join Becky’s April Squares: SquareTops. There are only two rules: the photo must be square and it must relate to the theme of the month.

The theme for April Squares is ‘top‘, and Becky has listed five idioms to choose from;

  1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak (tiptop) or uppermost part of something.
  2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you are really lucky a circus!)
  3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
  4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
  5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer or top dollar!

The main tag is #SquareTops but you may also want to add a second tag using the idiom your square is coming under.

Ancient Entertainment

The Flavian Amphitheater, better known as the Colosseum, stands in the heart of ancient Rome. Built by the emperors Vespasian and Titus between 70-80 AD, the amphitheater is 157 ft high. Only a small portion of the original outer wall remains. Ancient sources state that over 9,000 wild animals were killed during the inaugural games in the Colosseum. The venue held between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators depending on its configuration at the time
