Bust of Lucilla
Material and technique:
Rome, Quirinale tunnel (1901)
Opere del percorso
During the excavations for the creation of the tunnel under the Quirinale at the beginning of the Nineteenth Century, the remains of a house were found, attributed to Fulvius Plauziano, the prefect of the Praetorian Guard under Septimus Severus, on the basis of an inscription legible on the lead water-piping.
Elements of the sculptural decoration, statues and busts, relief and portrait slabs, were found, still in place inside the rooms, the floors of which were laid in marble and mosaics.
