Nice one.

Can find no better picture to accompany it than the top one here - by Gideon Fidler (almost painted to fit the poem). Browning wrote his Love Among the Ruins in 1855 so Fidler (1856-1935) may well have been influenced by it. And Browning's, And that glory and that shame alike, the gold Bought and sold. an admonition, then and now perhaps, to those who seek, sell or even suggest that we should treat our heritage so.
