The first Roman highway, named for the censor Appius Claudius Caecus who constructed it; built in 312 B.C. to join Rome to Capua, and later continued to Brundisium; a stone causeway, constructed with embankments, and of such width that two broad wagons could pass each other easily; paved with closely fitted polygonal blocks of hard stone. (Harris, 1977)
