Ancient Roman mosaic, depicting a skeleton (perhaps a memento mori) above the Greek maxim from Delphi γνῶθι σεαυτόν (”know thyself”).  Artist unknown; 1st cent. CE (?)  Found during excavations at the convent of San Gregorio on the Via Appia, Rome; now in the National Museum, Rome.  Photo credit: Lessing Photo Archive.

The Trevi Fountain receives around 3,000 euros every day. At night, the money is collected to subsidize a supermarket for Rome’s needy.
