Virtual Visit of this Room

The room presents an array of architectural terra-cottas, from Rome and Latium, datable from the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD. On the walls is the partial reconstruction of the fictile decoration of the roofs of the Roman period, obtained with the use of original elements (antefixes and panels). On the front wall, below, are three panels in relief from the cycle of the twelve labours of Hercules: fight with the lion, with the Lernaean hydra, with the Cretan bull (cat. 14163, 14160, 14477). Showcase A has a rich selection of glassware of various eras, the latest examples of which date back to Imperial Rome and the early Middle Ages. There are also objects of ivory and bone.
