Pons Cestius

The Pons Cestius (Italian: Ponte Cestio "Cestius' Bridge") is a stone bridge from the island to the right (west) bank of the Tiber. It was built around the first century BC (some time between 62 and 27 BC), after the pons Fabricius, which situates on the other side of island. Both the ponti Cestius and Fabricius were long-living bridges; however, whereas the Fabricius remains wholly intact, the Cestius was largely destroyed in the 19th century with only some of the ancient structure preserved. The pons Cestius is the first bridge that reached the right bank of Tiber form the Tiber Island. While the island was long connected with the left bank of the Tiber, even before the pons Fabricius, the right bank (Transtiber) remained unconnected until the Cestius. Several prominent members of the Cestii clan from this period are known, but it is uncertain which built this bridge.
