The Capitoline Museum, Rome, August 2013

 I can't recall how many times this image appeared in an undergraduate Latin text, 
but I saw it often enough to be delighted to see the original! 

An elegant sarcophagus, with a strange, theatrical mask 
in the upper left corner that I'd see again in Italy....

 I guess these were leftovers of a sort, in a courtyard. What leftovers!

A chariot! A real, bleeding chariot! If only it'd had a date on the placard!
