Fragments of a Roman sarcophagus with the Four Seasons

Ca. 250. White marble.
Galería Jónica Planta Principal Norte

The cycle of the Four Seasons has a long tradition in figurative art. The personifications of the different periods of the year were accompanied by the element that identified them, all associated with the rural world. As part of a sarcophagus lid, this pair of reliefs makes clear reference to the passing of time.
