Marcus Aurelius’ Triumph

Fine Art Photo Print


This bas relief shows the Emperor Marcus Aurelius in a triumphal parade riding in a quadriga (a four-horse-drawn chariot). Engraved on one of the panels of the chariot are three gods; Neptune, Roma (seated), and Minerva. Immediately above and behind him is Nike (Victory) who seems to be carrying two crowns made of laurel, one in each hand. A cornicen (trumpeter) announces Aurelius’ coming. A triumphal arch stands in the background. Marcus Aurelius fought several wars along the boundary of the empire, against the Parthians, German tribes, and Sarmatians.
