On the first floor of the museum there are sculptures from Flavia to the Late Imperial periods.

Some of the sculptures are really stunning, and I kept coming back to look at then again from different angles, such as the famous wrestler resting after a fight, the discus thrower (Roman copy of the Greek statue), and others.
The sarcophagi are also truly amazing in detail and workmanship.
