Relief of the sepulture of the Haterii.

Detail. The age of Domitian.

Rome, Vatican Museums, Gregorian Profane Museum
(Musei Vaticani, Museo gregoriano profano)

Origin:
From the Tomb of the Haterii on the Via Labicana.
Description:
Another relief, depicting five ancient Roman monuments, documents the construction of certain important buildings from the Flavian age. This frieze is part of a series of finds held by the museum that were taken from the Tomb of the Haterii, which stood at the third mile of the Via Labicana. It depicts: the arch marking the entrance of the Temple of Isis (Iseo Campese) built just after 80 AD, the Coliseum still without its top storey, a four-sided arch, the Arch of Titus, and the Temple of Jupiter Custos enlarged about 90 AD. Presumably, the dead man was a contractor who had had an active role in the construction of the buildings shown.
