It includes a collection of statues (Roman copies of Greek originals), various Roman portraits, clay and marble tables with representations of art sand trades, various types of furnishings and glass, ivory, and bronze objects. A group of testimonies of oriental cults, sarcophagi, funerary and domestic wall paintings, polychrome mosaics, and a magnificent decoration with marble marquetries that comes from a building discovered near Porta Marina.
