Roman water spout with pointed arch (right, in wall), 1st century AD, leading to canals under the Eastern fortress and opening into a square with 3 obelisks, 1 of which remains, Apollonia, Fier, Albania. The style of this spout is typically Apollonian and was built under Pax Romana, a time when defence was less important. Apollonia was an ancient Greek city in Illyria, founded in 588 BC by Greek colonists from Corfu and Corinth. It flourished in the Roman period and declined from the 3rd century AD when its harbour was silted up due to an earthquake. Picture by Manuel Cohen
