“Achilles mourning the dead Patroclus” — scene from the front panel of the sarcophagus with representation of scenes from the Iliad.

Greek marble. 160 CE.
Inv. No. SBAO 43504.

Ostia, Archaeological Museum
(Museo archeologico ostiense)

Origin:
Necropolis of Pianabella, 1976. The fragments of the sarcophagus were acquired in 1982 by the Antikenmuseum in Berlin from illegal archeologists, as “a part of a private collection”. After excavations in 1988—1991, when the rest part of the sarcophagus was discovered in situ, all the parts were reunited and under mutual agreement are displayed in Ostia.
