Two depictions of ancient Roman architecture, funerary monuments. One is an Egyptian-inspired pyramid, and the other a more traditional funeral monument, often seen outside of the city walls of ancient Roman towns (such as in Pompeii). Slight foxing on the edges, but very good considering the age. A wonderful, classically inspired print of Roman antiquity.
