Abstract

This paper is giving some notes on the town-planning of Mediolanum, that is, of the Roman Milano. In particular, we will discuss the orientation of the main street of the Roman town, the Decumanus. It is possible that the Decumanus of Mediolanum had been oriented along the major southern azimuth of moonrise.

Keywords: Archaeoastronomy, Satellite Images, Roman Town Planning
