0h 1min, jun 19, 250 y BC - Ludovisi Battle Sarcophagus
Late Imperial Roman
Romans vs. Goths
Romans seen heroic, ideal
Goths seen barbaric.
Style is pulling away from classical antiquity. Not a clear sense of space. Very dense.
More sarcophagi 2nd and 3rd century. More fashionable to bury dead instead of cremation.
