Hall of the Faun

The Faun in ancient red marble which gives its name to this room comes from Hadrian's Villa. 
The walls feature a series of inscriptions, including the famous bronze table with the Lex de imperio Vespasiani, with which the Senate authorised the transfer of power to the Emperor Vespasian in 69 AD.
