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 Titus were built by Emperor Titus to celebrate the opening of the Colosseum in 80 AD.
