Itinerarium Paulinum: Tre Fontane

Ancient tradition makes it possible to establish the following. Paul suffered martyrdom near Rome at a place called Aquae Salviae, now Tre Fontane, somewhat east of the Ostian Way, about two miles from the splendid Basilica of San Paolo fuori le mura which marks his burial place. The martyrdom took place towards the end of the reign of Nero, around the year 63 or 64 A.D.
