"Marius' Mules": modern replica of the packs carried by Roman soldiers following 'Marian' reforms; packs included a blanket, toolkit, and messkit, and could weigh over 90lbs!
Praeneste: still dominating the hillside are remains of a grandiose theater-temple complex to Fortuna Primigenia (perhaps developed by Sulla, following his massacre and subsequent resettlement of the town)
