Child’s sarcophagus detail

Detail, sarcophagus for child, marble, Roman era

This small and touchingly beautiful sarchophagus for a child tells the story of his life on the sides and his death along the front. These were found near the temples where catacombs were created in Roman times and then enlarged during the Byzantine period.
