Description

The ram was one of the most popular choices of sacrificial victim in the Roman world. Rams’ heads are usually found on drinking vessels (rhytons), bronze furniture, funerary altars made from marble, and architectural decoration. Although sometimes merely decorative, the image of the ram’s head was usually accompanied by ritual overtones: as animals important to Roman religion and ritual, they were a potent motif. In ancient astrology, they were also important to Romans as the first sign of the Zodiac (Aries), which reigned over the spring months bringing fertility and crops.
