Two Treasures

The Capitoline Museum constructed a special interior plaza with massive skylighting 
to display some of their greatest treasures.  That's the original equestrian bronze of 
Marcus Aurelius from 176 A.D. at left.  (We'll see Marcus without his clothes later 
in today's set.)  And of course the other is the famous she-wolf sucklng Romulus
 and Remus, which many, but not all, experts date to the 5th Century B.C.
