THE ROMAN EMPERORS IN MARBLE. 59
Rome that bore his features, vanished in a single night.
It is lucky that the zeal for collecting is spurred on by
that for destroying. Our time could not otherwise com-
pare a marble Caligula, Nero, Commodus, with the same
men in history. Caius Caesar’s mail-clad statue in the
gallery of Naples was dug up at Garigliano, together
with a statue of Trajan. Only to a collector would it
occur to house them under the same roof.
