Roman fresco. Fresco showing a Roman charioteer with a crown and holding a palm branch. This fresco is in the Building of the Charioteers at Ostia Antica, an ancient Roman seaport built at the mouth of the Tiber River near Rome, Italy. The port was founded by the Roman king Ancus Marcius in about 620 BC and was used to import grain and other essentials for the city of Rome. This fresco was made in the 2nd century AD.
