Octagonal Font with School Group

A school group examines the octagonal marble font of the 12th or 13th century in the Battistero Neoniano (Orthodox Baptistery), built 451-75. In the background can be seen inlaid marble decorations preserved from the ancient Roman baths that were converted to the baptistery.
