Caption: Roman aqueduct. Section of one of the longest aqueducts built in the Roman Empire, near Oudna, Tunisia. Constructed during the time of Hadrian (late 1st to early 2nd century AD) this aqueduct carried 32 million litres of water per day from its source at Mount Zaghouan to the city of Carthage (near modern-day Tunis). It was first restored by the Byzantines and later by the Fatimids and Hashids in the thirteenth century. It remained in use until the seventeenth century and much is preserved along the road between Zaghouan and Tunis.
