The tomb of Marcus Vergilius Eurysaces, Rome.
The tomb of Eurysaces near the Porta Maggiore was built in c.30 BCE by a man named Marcus Vergilius Eurysaces. A former slave, he had started a bakery and had become rich, which is shown in the decoration.
Later, several aqueducts were constructed but the tomb was respected, and it was later included in one of the towers of a city gate belonging to the wall of Aurelian. When this gate was demolished in the nineteenth century, the tomb became visible again. #brutgroup photo via #_di_ma
