British Museum VI: Roman Antiquities

This is the last of the British Museum posts which, of course, barely scratch the surface…

Marcus Aurelius

Fighting a sea-monster (2nd century BCE, Chiusi)

Lid of sea-monster urn

Roman mosaic, provenance unclear (to me anyway, signage in the stairwells was poor).

Antoninus Pius

Lid of Lars Cala’s urn (2nd century BCE)

Funerary relief of the freedmen P. Licinius Philonicus and P. Licinius Demetrius (30 – 10 BCE)

Relief of a ship, from Carthage, ca. 200 CE.
