Room Virgilio

1 review of Room Virgilio



The Chamber of Virgil is currently closed allowing renovation of the Bardo Palace . The main artwork, however, that the room used to host has been moved to a small room that is attached to the Dougga Room . The Mosaic is the most important artwork in the whole museum, and it dates from the 3rd century. It was found in Hadrumetum (Sousse) and is the only known portrait of the Roman poet Virgil. It appears dressed in a white robe decorated with embroidery, holding a papyrus (about which you can read in the 8th verse of Aeneid), surrounded by the muses Clio and Melpomene.
