Sala a Croce Greca

The Sala a Croce Greca (Room at the Greek Cross) is part of the Museo Pio-Clementino, one of the Vatican Museums.
The room houses a statue of the young Octavian, and a mosaic of the Cnidian Venus (a copy of the original masterpiece). But the centerpiece of the Sala a Croce Greca are the huge porphyry sarcophagi of Saints Helena and Costantina (respectively the mother and daughter of Constantine the Great). Pope Pius VI (1717-1775) spent some half million lire, an enormous sum at the time, bringing the two stone coffins to the museum, and having them repaired.
