Berlin III: The Pergamon

These photos and others are going to be useful for my classes. At top is the Altar of Zeus taken from the Greek town of Pergamon. In the middle is actually a tombstone from a tomb along the Appian Way near Rome. Interestingly, the inscriptions say that had been slaves to won/bought their freedom and, clearly, they went on to become solid members of society. At bottom is a statue of a Roman soldier. I liked the kind of goofy expression on his face and the hand extended as though he was asking for a beer.
