Imagine what grandeur this amphitheater would have had if marble covered the entire thing? Some of the marble were replaced to show what it might have been. "If everything were perfectly preserved because the destruction was sudden, then where are all the marbles?" I asked the tour guide. He answered with a shrug and these words: "You probably seen the beautiful marble decorations in San Pietro?" I get it... If, in digging a well to find some water, I find beautifully preserved marble, why! I would definitely take them home too and decorate my abode with it :-) Won't you?
