Maybe I spoke too soon when I called the recently unveiled Vatican cemetery “pagan.” The tombs may represent Christian and pagan as well as rich and poor. Rogue Classicism tells us of one “sarcophagus of a young ‘equites’ (knight), Publius Caesilius Victorinus (270-290 AD), which shows a figure in prayer next to a tree and with a bird above.”
