The stock image depicts a Roman milestone, a stone pillar used in ancient times to mark the distances along the roads of the Roman Empire. The stone is engraved with Roman numerals indicating the distance to various destinations.
The milestone is made of stone, with a rectangular base and a cylindrical shaft that tapers slightly towards the top. The surface of the stone is rough and weathered, with some of the markings faintly visible due to the passage of time.
The image gives a glimpse of the advanced engineering and infrastructure that the ancient Romans were known for, as well as their penchant for order and organization.
