Sllt brought down to tho Tlber mouth, drled, pulverlzed, and wlnd-borne, has gradually fllled up streets and rulned bulldlngs deacrted by men becauao of the fovors which wore brcd from choked-up harbors and channels of tho rlver. Partly for fear of theao fovors, partly becauso Civlta Vccchla was found, ultlmately, to be tho bottor port for Rome, no con sldorablo populatlon has over re turn ed to Oatia, not even during a tompo rary revlvaj ln tho flfteenth century, when the exlatlmr Danal castlo was bullt. Tho town had from the flrst a, precarlous exlstence. Its llfe was glven to lt by the Tlber, but the Tl ber could not bo trustod. Tho rlvqr allted up lts harbors ono aftor the oth or, and slltcd up ltaelf. The port from which nayles sallod to tho Pu nlc wars had become ueelais by tho tlme ot AugustuB, and Claudius flrst and Trajan aftor him, had to dlg out now baslns at enormous expense some distanco away to the north, and cut connectlng channels, which the rlver proceeded to sllt up as ot old. In the end lt proved lmposalblo (or not worth whlle) to keep anjr port open Into which the maln eurrent of the Tlber flowed; and lf Trajan's foaaa, or canal, dredged out anew y Pope Paul V., ln the early sevonteenth century, ls stlll navlgable for amall oraft worklngs up to Ro'mo, it ls a channel only, and the huge sproadlng baslns, that ot Trajan 'aa" well as that of Clnudlua, are. dry.

And nll this populatlon had to havo lts places of amuscment, aa woll as Its temples, and there wras wealth enough to decorate theao with statutary which the Qraeco-Roman artlsts ot tho mo tropolls probably supplled.
