Eurysaces and Atistia return to splendour at Centrale Montemartini in Rome.
A recently-restored funerary relief of Eurysaces the baker and his wife Atistia has been put on display at the Centrale Montemartini museum in the Ostiense district of Rome.
The sculpture, which dates to the first century BC, was rediscovered in 1838 at the imposing tomb of Marco Virgilio Eurysaces, a rich freedman of Greek origin.
Located in Porta Maggiore, the tomb is one of Rome's largest and best-preserved freedman funerary monuments.
The restored funerary relief is on display at Centrale Montemartini from 1 March until 30 June. For more details see museum website.
