Orpheus Monument - visitptuj.eu

Marble Roman headstone

This marble monument was erected to honor the memory of Marcus Valerius Verus, who was the mayor of Poetovio (Ptuj) in the 2nd century AD. The five-meter tall monolith is still standing where it was raised by the Romans. In the middle ages the monument, ornamented with scenes from the myth of Orpheus, was used as a pillory.
