BibliOdyssee has a marvelous post on a 1600 depiction of the Circus Maximus, with images and links:
De Ludis Circensibus
(The Circus Games)
Onofrio Panvinio (1530-1568) was an Augustinian monk and
one of the most important Renaissance historians of early Rome. He
arrived there from Verona in 1549 and obtained degrees in liberal arts
and theology while cultivating a deep interest in archaeology. He was
appointed to the position of Corrector and Reviser of the books of the
Vatican Library in 1556.
[...] 'De Ludis Circensibus' was thought to have been first published in 1600 and features etched and engraved illustrations by Étienne Dupérac, who collaborated with Panvinio for the last three years of Panvinio's life. The plates are often reworkings of earlier designs by Pirro Ligorio that were included in the eclectic assortment of material associated with Antonio Lafreri's so-called 'Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae', an everchanging collection of Roman antiquities prints, assembled and published from the mid-16th century onwards.
