Happy Independence Day

"It is forbidden to disfigure external decorations on private buildings through modern additions, and to spoil historic buildings in an important town out of avarice and the desire to make money."

Theodosius, Valentinianus, Arcadius [309 AD]
Quoted by Anthony Crosby in the APT Bulletin [1987]
