|Photos of Ostia, Italy shown against a map background.|
Nearly all of the pictures are photographs which we took ourselves in 2005 and 2010. The site is intended to be a reference source of pictures of Ostia. And so the pictures may be used by scholars, researchers, or students for free. Even though no compensation or permission is required we do like to hear how our pictures are being used. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com. We very much hope that the users, you, will be in touch.
This website is new and in the first stages of production. We hope to continue to put photographs on the site and are always looking for photographs of Ostia to display. Some areas of Ostia are not well represented in pictures, notable Regio V.
We want to take this opportunity to thank Drs Robert Harp and Dr. Jan Theo Bakker. Such a site, with the name PHOSPHOR, was originally their idea. And, if you don’t yet know it, you’ll want to check out Dr. Bakker’s Ostia website on Ostia Antica.
