ABSTRACT
The article reports that archaeologists have found a marble head of Constantine while clearing an ancient drainage system in the Roman Forum. Carved 1,700 years ago, the 2-foot-high noggin likely capped a statue of the emperor in full armor. It appears the piece was deliberately placed in the sewer, possibly to divert water or perhaps out of pagans' spite for their Christian emperor.
