Notes NOTES: Part of the Burlington Devonshire Collection, this drawing (copied from Palladio's conjectural reconstruction of the 1540s) was prepared for 'Fabbriche Antiche disegnate da Andrea Palladio Vicentino, e date in luce da Ricardo Conte di Burlington', (London, 1730), for Lord Burlington. The Baths of Diocletian, built between 298 and 306 AD, surpassed all others in extent and magnificence. They fell in to decay in 537 AD when the Goths destroyed the Aqua Marcia.
