The Capitoline triad.

2nd sentury CE.

Rome, Roman National Museum, Baths of Diocletian
(Roma, Museo nazionale romano, Terme di Diocleziano).

Rome — the University of Rome collection.
A little pediment with a depiction of the three major divinities of the Roman pantheon. At the centre there is Jove with one of his attributes, the eagle, there are Juno with her head veiled and Minerva with her helmet and round shield. At the sides of the triad are Castor and Pollux, the Dioscuri. The relief was
probably inspired to the pediment of the capitoline temple after the domitician reconstruction.
