Mark gets a no-prize with a characteristic lisp for bringing us news of more developments surrounding that Roman bath complex discussed in a previous article. This time, they've found a giant head of Marcus Aurelius. The find has caused them to rethink what was going on inside that bath house when it collapsed. Now, instead of theorizing that the statues were there in preparation for their destruction for quicklime, it's thought they were part of the decoration of the place, and were lost outright when it collapsed.
