Description

The relief recalls the foundation of Aquileia, which took place in 181 BC in the presence of the magistrates sent from Rome, according to a rite that tradition led back to Romulus. The furrow left by the plow pulled by an ox and a cow adorned with rich harnesses defined the pomerium, the sacred and impassable perimeter of the city. The representation was exhibited in a place of great importance, probably above one of the city gates.
