Sarcophagus with Amazons and Achilles with Penthesilea
Vatican Museums, Vatican City, Rome
“Sarcophagus with Amazons and Achilles with Penthesilea” is dated to about 230-250 AD. Testified in 1550 in the villa of Julius III Ciocchi Del Monte (1550-55), Villa Giulia, and moved to the Octagonal Courtyard at the Vatican Museums in 1776. It was restored many times. The faces of Achilles and Penthesilea have the features of the couple of dead who were buried there, according to a use common in ancient Rome. The style of the work is typical of the first half of the third century AD.
