«Érase una vez» un descubrimiento que cambió el rumbo de la escultura.
Un 14 de enero de 1506 se localizaba por azar, en una viña romana cercana a Sta. Mª la Mayor, el grupo escultórico del «Laocoonte». Así fantaseaba su hallazgo el paisajista francés Hubert Robert en un lienzo de 1773.
Aquella obra recién desenterrada no pasó desapercibida para el papa Julio II, coleccionista y gran amante del arte, quien, tras su recuperación, la compró para instalarla en el patio de las estatuas del Belvedere vaticano.

1/5: Decorated with winged victories and military trophies, these two capitals at S Lorenzo fuori le mura, #Rome, are among the most unusual #Roman capitals I've seen as #spolia in a #medieval church. #classicstwitter #archaeology #sculpture #LateAntiquity
2/5: Pope Pelagius II (579-90), predecessor of Gregory the Great, built the church over St Lawrence's tomb. The pair of figured capitals is deliberately placed nearest the altar; the rest of the colonnade has #Roman Corinthian capitals, also #spolia. #MedievalArt #architecture
3/5: In the galleries, two elaborate #Roman Composite capitals and columns with spiral fluting add the same emphasis. Contemporary (6th century) capitals, plinths, and imposts also appear less prominently throughout the basilica. #architecture #LateAntiquity

Thread: The Temple of Jupiter inside Diocletian's Palace, Split. Constructed around 300 AD and dedicated to Emperor Diocletian's "divine father", the supreme Roman god Jupiter. The temple was converted into a baptistery in the 7th century. #roman #architecture #croatia
The temple entrance retains its intricately carved marble cornice. Amongst the decorative motifs of leaves, tendrils and flowers are carved images of Roman gods such as Sol, Victoria, Apollo, Triton and Hercules.
Details of the elaborately carved marble doorway with images of the Roman pantheon. #roman #sculpture #religion
