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!
