Il cosiddetto "Tondo severiano" (200 circa d.C., Berlino, Altes Museum) è un esempio fortunatamente conservato di pittura romana su tavola: ritrae la famiglia imperale composta da Settimoio Severo, Giulia Domna e i loro figli Caracalle e Geta. I due fratelli si odiavano: per rimanere solo al potere, Caracalla uccise Geta e lo colpì con la "damnatio memoriae", come testimonia il suo volto cancellato dal dipinto

Rare Human-faced Crab Carapace on a Greek Drachm from Akragas (Sicily), c. 420 BC  The obverse shows two eagles perched on the carcass of a hare.
