Arènes de Lutèce
From page 68: [Stuyvesant] set off across the heart of the Latin Quarter in the direction of the Arènes de Lutèce. Lutetia was Rome’s name for the city, and the one-time arena was a restful spot in the Quarter—if one ignored the ghostly sounds of lions and dying gladiators.
After two millennia of intense change, Rome still protrudes from the foundations of Paris. On the Right Bank the remains are primarily found in the shapes of the roads, but in the Latin Quarter, Roman baths (fed by a ten-mile long aqueduct) and the Arena can still be seen.
