Since March 2020 until the present (late Nov. 2021), with the emergency restrictions of the Global Covid-19 Pandemic in Italy and elsewhere world-wide, much of the pre-March 2020 planning for the completion of the major archaeological & architectural restoration activities with the area of the Imperial Fora in 2020 onwards by the Italian Ministry of Culture, the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum and the City of Rome (and the affiliated Universities in Rome and Italy) has been put on hold and or delayed. One of the major recently proposed projects by the Italian Ministry of Culture, the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum & the La Sapienza University of Rome etc., is the “Roma, Il Tempio Della Pacis & Il Nuovo ‘Visitor Center’ del Foro Romano, 2014-21” and the “ROMA – Il Colosseo, La Piazza, Il Museo, La Citta”, 2021; please see the following links:

Whether or not either one of these two projects will resume sometime in the near future, it is uncertain because of the ongoing emergency restrictions of the Global Covid-19 Pandemic in Italy?

Yet, in more recent terms of the possible new future studies of the Forum and Temple of Peace (2021 onwards), besides the Dr. Giulia Facchin & Dr. Riccardo Santangeli Valenzani conference presentation, 18 Nov. 2021; Just today, 19 Nov. 2021, Prof. Arch. Luigi Tucci made available on his Academia.edu., a brief abstract of the following forthcoming article:

What makes Prof. Tucci’s very interesting new abstract “The forgotten graffiti of the Temple of Peace.” (2021) & forthcoming paper (2022?); is the fact according to Prof. Tucci, he had been working on an idea for the topic centered on: “Temple of Peace, graffiti, spoliation, conservation” as mentioned in the abstract / forthcoming paper for sometime (Prof. Tucci, personal communication, mid-Nov. 2021).

In photograph on the right in Prof. Tucci’s abstract (2021), p. 1 (= “A victorious Auriga (charioteer)… wears a Lorica Segmentata?” [date ca. 5-6th century A.D?]); the source of this photograph of a “Auriga (charioteer)?” was taken in the Forum of Peace / Vespasian in Rome on 10 Sept. 2010; but, the original author / photographer did not make the image available to the public until sometime in January 2021.

Earlier this week on Sunday, 12 Nov. 2021; I discovered the above mentioned photograph of the “Auriga (charioteer)” on Flickr? I contacted Prof. Tucci also on Sunday, Via Twitter,. Basically, inquiring if he has ever mentioned this particular “Graffiti” in many of his published works on the Forum of Peace? I had never seen or read of this particular discovery of the “Graffiti – charioteer?” in the Italian news media in Rome, nor in any of the official Italian published works or references on the Forum of Peace (1999 thru the present)? Furthermore, in my archive of recent photographs or archival photographs of the excavations and studies of the Forum of Peace, in “Zone C” (1999-2021), while my various photographs show the location of the area of the site of the “Graffiti – charioteer?” in the Forum of Peace; moreover, none of the photographs showed any visual clues or visual references of the “Graffiti – charioteer?” itself?

Here again, I contacted Prof. Tucci, because I had no idea or information in print or other photographic references on the “Graffiti – charioteer?” in the Forum of Peace; Initially, I believed although the area in the photograph looks similar to the Forum of Peace? I thought that maybe the photographer mislabeled the photograph, possibly being located somewhere else in Rome?

Fortunately, both Prof. Tucci and the photographer were both kind enough to reply to me, both mentioning what was the photograph actually showing? And where exactly was it located in the Forum of Peace?

The author / photographer of the photograph of the “Graffiti – charioteer?” wrote to me via facebook (14 Nov. 2021 [personal communication), stating:

“…You can cite it as DigitalMapsoftheAncientWorld. I believe I took it in the Summer of 2010. It was carved into a stone inside the Forum of Vespasian and I believe it may represent a charioteer.”

Note: “Graffiti – charioteer?” photograph reproduced here in my blog posting online with the author’s / photographer’s permission via Facebook Communication [15 Nov. 2021]). Also see: Note 3 (below).

While Prof. Tucci, also replied generally confirming the photographer’s comments on the location of the “Graffiti – charioteer?” in the Forum of Peace, writing me Via Twitter (14 Nov. 2021), stating:

“Yes, this is the top of the second step of the SW portico, toward the Forum of Nerva.”

Thanks to Prof. Tucci (2021), pp. 1 &2; with his new background information on the earlier discovery of the “Graffiti – charioteer?” as to where it is exactly located in the Forum of Nerva / Forum of Peace? And when? I have added additional photographs (cited here above = [Foto: Gianni Napoli, 1999] & [Plan: S. Rizzo et al, 1999]) to assist the interested reader in better understanding where the actual “Graffiti – charioteer?”. With further visual references as to the progress of the excavations in the Forum of Nerva / Forum of Peace in April 1999 and again in December 1999.
