Elena, What is "Cloaca Maxima"? Google translate makes no change to these two words. It did change Köln to Cologne. Is this a dungeon? Best wishes, Dave and Laurie

There was a perfect sewage systems in Cologne as early as the 2nd half of the 1st century. Rain and household wastewater was collected in small gutters in streets and led to the main pipe lines. This was probably build during the reign of Nero.

...not sure, if I use some words correctly...
