Tomba di Rotari (Tomb of Rotharis)

Interesting
Rotharis was the King of the Lombards in the 7C. It appears that this monument whose entrance is surmounted by scenes from the life Christ, was really a Baptistry. Inside, notice how a square, an octagon and a triangle are superimposed up to the dome.
