Greek Mythology at the Vatican

As my Art and Myth of the Classical World course, at ASU, comes to a close, I fondly remember the day I spent at the Vatican Museum.  There are sections of the museum that are filled with gloriously themed Greek sculptures and sarcophagi.   The museums at the Vatican are so vast and there is so much to see, it is almost overwhelming for a one day trip.  While our stay in Rome was brief, the next time I am in the city, I will take my time over two separate days; just so that I am able to take it all in.  The pieces that I know are labeled, but there are a few that I was not certain of.  Here is just a taste of the sculptures, from the Vatican Museum in Rome, Italy.
