Fresco of Duck and Tripod, Columbarium 3, Vigna Codini

This fresco is on the first landing of the columbarium discovered in 1852 CE at the Vigna Codini, on the strip of land between Via Latina and Via Appia. The fresco has crumbled from the wall, revealing the first-century CE opus reticulatum brickwork. The urns in these loculi were properly concealed beneath a marble revetment.
