Lesser Known Ancient "Wonders" of the World


So everyone knows about Stonehenge, the Great Pyramids, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Lighthouse (and of course) the Library of Alexandria, the Colosseum and Circus Maximus of Rome, and the Great Wall of China. But what are some other important but less discussed architectural achievements of the ancient and classical world?


Personally, I think Roman sewer system and their public baths are a fantastic wonder in and of themselves. Although less "flashy" than the well-known wonders, they served an extremely important sanitary purpose that helped make the Roman civilization stand-up even to a lot of modern expectations.
