Remains of a lavish home and garden occupied by the indulgent Emperor Caligula have been discovered under an office building in central Rome. 

Italian researchers who excavated the site found a luxury palace with an ornate garden complete with water fountains and an exotic menagerie that housed ostriches, deer and even a bear.  

Artefacts taken from the site, including jewels, coins, animal bones and a metal brooch belonging to an imperial guard, are set to go on public display.  

 

A water pipe with the name of Claudius, which means that not only Caligula but also his successor was linked with the building

Summary: This is an older story with a recent press release. The new museum could be a wonderful source for Caligula and early Roman empire history. One never knows what they can still find during routine digging in Rome.
