Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) - Altars dedicated to Apollo, Pompey the Great's Villa at Albano Villa Doria Pamphilj
Incisione - Firmato su lastra - 1778

Plate 95 of Vasi, candelabri, cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne, ed ornamenti antichi disegnati ed incisi dal Cav. Gio. Batt. Piranesi, depicting one of two identical altars dedicated to Apollo, found in the ruins of Pompey the Great's Villa at Albano, now part of the grounds of the Villa Doria Pamphilj. The plate is dedicated to 'That Noble Man, Mr Giambattista Collicola Montioni,' Chief Herald of the Vatican Apostolic Palace and patron of the arts. Pontifical backing was an important boost to the antiquarian interests of Piranesi and his contemporaries. The work from which this plate was drawn was intended in part to reinvigorate papal patronage following the death of Clement XIII in 1769.
