Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The sarcophagus with hunting scenes, known as Mattei I, is an ancient Roman sarcophagus of the 3rd century, displayed at the palazzo Mattei in Rome. It is 1.31m high. From the age of Caracalla onwards carved sarcophagus production shows a kind of reaction to the "pittoricism" of examples from the preceding era (late 2nd-early 3rd century), such as the Portona sarcophagus), with a return to richer plasticity, as is also documented in Roman portraiture between 215 and 250.show more
