Although it is true that Leiden is an old city, its claimed connection with Roman Lugdunum Batavorum is spurious; Roman Lugdunum is actually near the close-by suburb of Katwijk, whereas the Roman settlement near modern Leiden was called Matilo. However, there was a Roman fortress in Leiden in the 4th century.

Nicely done, I can see the attention you put into this image. I don't usually like white vignette, but looks perfect here.

Very nice Peter!
I was born and raised in Leiden. It is such a beautiful city and I enjoy it each time I go back to visit relatives. It is a city rich in history and it seems that I still discover things even after all the years.
Actually it played a key role in the birth of the New World - America.
