IV. Sala Rotonda, erected under Pius VI. by Simonetti,
after the model of the Pantheon. The floor contains a large Mosaic,
found in 1780 at Otricoli (p. 106), with Nereids, Tritons, Centaurs,
and masks. In the centre a magnificent basin of porphyry, brought
from the Villa di Papa Giulio to the Vatican in 1705 by Clement XI.

Septimius Severus: 553. Plotina, wife of Trajan. Then, to the left,

Antinous as Bacchus, from Hadrian's Praenestine villa (p. 482;

dicate that the statue was originally draped, perhaps with metal;
the present drapery is modern. **539. Bust of Zeus from Otricoli,
