Seriously damaged by tombaroli who hurriedly looted it from an ancient villa in Inviolata (outside of Tivoli), this second-century A.D. sculpture of the gods (from left to right) Minerva, Jupiter and Juno was recovered in early 1994 by Italian police in Switzerland. The 3-foot-high marble sculpture, known as the Capitoline Triad, is a decorative version of a monumental carving that once adorned the Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus on Rome’s Capitoline Hill. It is one of the rare illegally excavated archaeological objects recovered by Italian police; of the tens of thousands of artworks recovered over the last several years, all but a handful were stolen from Italy’s museums.
