Urbino Lapidary Museum

The Museo del Lapidario di Urbino is the home of a rich epigraphic collection divided into two main sections: the first dedicated to the finds from Rome including urns in relief, inscribed and figured plates and brick stamps; the second, on the other hand, in addition to the epigraphic material, also collects the statuary material. Here you can find inscribed marble bases, sepulchral inscriptions, statues and bas-reliefs. Furthermore, the tombstones are placed on 22 mirrors along the walls and other finds have been arranged inside the other five rooms in the museum.

In addition to the epigraphs that make up the central nucleus of the collection, it is worth noting the relief in purple porphyry that describes the episode of Ulysses and the sirens and the slab of the marmorarius Eutropus.
