Valle del Metauro


Set on the ground floor of Palazzo Ducale, home to the National Gallery of the Marche, the Archaeological Lapidarium Museum of Urbino boasts a rich epigraphic collection composed of two nuclei: the collection commissioned by R. Fabretti with inscriptions from the Urbino territory and from Rome, and the collection of Cardinal G.F. Stoppani with epigraphic material and statuary. The museum is organized among five rooms: the first holds Greek inscriptions and the famous inscription of the marmorarius Eutropos; the second exhibits Christian Latin inscriptions, including some with figures; the third room houses Christian reliefs; the fourth hosts epigrams, including one showing a verse of Callimaco and the metrics. Finally, the fifth room preserves burial inscriptions of a familial nature, including the famous purple porphyry relief with the episode of Ulysses and the Sirens. The tour ends with the exhibition of imperial, consular, military and sacred inscriptions, as well as those relating to public works.
