Monuments: Vatican Museums: Sarcophagi

Among the large archaeological collections of the Vatican Museums are an enormous number of elaborately carved marble sarcophagi. Many of these come from Christian or Jewish catacombs but others were collected for their artistic merit. The majority of the sarcophagi in the Vatican collections come from Rome and its environs and are carved in imported marble, generally by carvers based in the capital.
