Rome was founded in 753 BC by Romulus. Rome is 4,336 m (14,453 ft) above sea level and located inland about 27 kilometres (17 miles) from the Tyrrhenian Sea. Rome is known as the "Eternal city" and "Caput Mundi," coming from Latin and meaning capital of the world. Trajan’s Column in Rome is 128 feet high. The sculptural frieze that wraps around the column is approximately 655 feet in length. Rome became the capital city of a unified Italy in 1870 after taking the title from Florence. Concrete was a Roman invention used on many structures such as the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, which are still standing today thanks to the development of Roman cement and concrete. The Romans first began building with concrete over 2,100 years ago and used it throughout the Mediterranean basin in everything from aqueducts and buildings to bridges and monuments. SPQR stands for "Senatus Populusque Romanus" and means "The Senate and the people of Rome." The symbol is still seen all over the city today.
