In the virtual museum you will find photographs of many objects that were found in Ostia and Portus. Select a floor for a specific kind of material, and then a hall. With the exception of the Reception hall, all links are to photographs made by the National Italian Photographic Archive, ICCD. We realize that the identification of portraits as presented here does not incorporate recent research.
