Gallery 168 displays fine examples of material culture from the second century A.D., when the Roman empire was at the height of its power and prosperity and when people in Rome, throughout Italy, and in many of the provinces enjoyed a standard of living and a way of life that were unequaled both in antiquity and in more recent times.
Objects associated with activities that either ensured or benefited from imperial protection (the Roman army, the state religion, the games, and the baths) are also on view.
