Throughout the park at Ostia Antica marble fragments from buildings grand and glorious tell stories of Ancient Rome.
A soldier’s helmet and a fan-like design seem to have no connection in the minds of modern visitors.
A headless, armless female figure stands next to a column draped with a cloth. Could that be her garment? Had she been bathing? They mystery will never be solved.
Angels, cupids, of the ancient world are affectionate and appear to be about to kiss!
This and the following two photos show theatrical masks.
This theatrical mask demonstrates what a vibrant theatre life Ostia Antica had.
All three of these masks are displayed on the stage of the amphitheater.
The story of Romulus and Remus is told here in stone. The twins suckle at the teet of the She-Wolf who saved them from the river.
Cupids guide the horses of a chariot. This is quite an elaborately carved fragment, with vegetal and ribbon detailing.
