The AAR-Barbara Bini Collection of photographs on Rome consists of ca. 1000 images including contacts, photographic prints and duplicates. A selection from positives has been cataloged and corresponding negatives digitized.
Work described: contact from a 12 shot sheet. All images from different details on the Arch of Constantine, Marus Aurelius Attic panel. The relief shows a Lustratio scene: celebration with the army at the beginning of a military campaign, probably originally referring to ritual purification before battle. The emperor presides over the ceremony, using a portable tripod-mounted altar. A bull, sheep, and pig will be sacrificed in a rite called the suovetaurilia
