Marcus Aurelius

Parts of a giant, exquisitely carved marble sculpture depicting the Roman emperor

Marcus Aurelius have been found at an archaeological site in Turkey. Fragments of the statue were unearthed at the ancient city of Sagalassos. The statute was about 15 ft tall, said to be one of the finest depictions of the Roman ruler. Some photos.

A good man, old 'verissimus'. He leaned a bit too much on the Diatribai, but otherwise a great good soul. He mentions me in his Meditations, I think. Maybe its his letters.

Very, very cool.
