This is an original 1890 black and white relief line-block print of the sarcophagus of Constantia (Constantina) who was the daughter of Roman Emperor Constantine I. It is made from a single block of porphyry and was originally placed in Constantia's mausoleum at the Churchof Santa Costanza in Rome, Italy. We believe that is dates from the 4th century AD. It is now housed in the Vatican Museum.
