Title:Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus

Junius Bassus was the prefect of Rome, a pagan who became a convert to Christianity. He was baptized shortly before his death in 359. His faith was memoralized in his beautiful sarcophagus, sculpted by an artist whose identity is now lost to us. [Gardner's Art Through the Ages. Fred S. Kleiner. Wadsworth Publishing, 2008. p. 215]
