Ancient Rome Funeral

This antique print of a roman emperor’s funeral in ancient Rome is interesting for the various elements of detail such as the musicians playing horns and the military parade. The eagle taking flight was linked to the emperor’s “apotheosis” (flying up to the heavens and becoming a divinity)
