Beautifully preserved Roman sculpture of eagle

Beautiful Roman marble sculpture depicting an eagle. The object is located on the altar and dates to the 1st century CE. The object was found by Horatio Walpole in the remains of the baths of Caracalla in 1742. It is probably the best-preserved sculpture of an eagle, next to the “apotheosis of Claudius”. The facility is located at Strawberry Hill House in London.
