Day 24.

So this is the last night on Rome for a while, I'm off to Naples tomorrow. That means no more pictures until next Saturday unless the hotel give me internet access. On the other hand, it might be worth the wait as Campania have great promise when it come to romanophile pictures.

Anyway this is a selection of today's harvest, all pictures are from the Palazzo Massimo:

One of the many wall paintings that were cut from the original walls when they were found. As much as I hate the cutting part, I must admit that the museum environment is far gentler to the paintings then the outside air.

A show-piece altar, all four sides had detailed relief's.

This is one of the many reasons why I'm having a hard time appreciating late antiquity. It's a monster! No wonder that Rome fell to the barbarians.

A quality relief on a sarcophagus depicting a battle between Romans and barbarians.
