Sorting holiday pics. Raffaello da Montelupo's 1536 marble statue of Saint Michael holding his sword at Castel Sant'Angelo. Someone stole the sword unfortunately.

Hardly unsurprising when you consider that looting historically significanct monuments is a longstanding Roman tradition.

Most of the "ruined" ancient monuments in Rome were largely intact until they were nearly leveled for building material in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance.
