      Nero's gate unearthed in Cologne

      The Telegraph [UK], 26/04/2008

      A two thousand year old Roman gate thought to have been built by Emperor
      Nero has been discovered in the western German city of Cologne. The
      gate, and 11 metres of town wall alongside, were discovered by builders
      excavating Cologne's new metro line. More than two million pounds has
      now been allocated to preserve the gate, with the metro line running
      underneath, and a road passing overhead. "This is finest Roman
      handiwork,Ó said Hansgerd Hellenkemper, director of the Roman museum
      in the city, where a number of Roman artefacts have been found in recent
      times.
