Another angle on the Meta Sudans

The Meta Sudans was a fountain in Rome on the Appian Way, just inside the Arch of Constantine.  Its remains were demolished by Mussolini to make way for a road.  In old photographs it is usually photographed from the Arch of Titus, which makes it look more complete than it was.  Today I found online another photograph from the other side here.

Today only foundations remain.  I took care to look for them on my recent visit to Rome.  There is a circle in the grassy area in front of the Arch of Constantine.
