In the rooms hosting the Farnese Collection, be sure to see the Farnese Hercules, a colossal copy of the original by Lysippos, and the Farnese Bull, perhaps the largest sculpture to have survived from antiquity. Among the other gems in this collection are the so-called Farnese cup, made from a single piece of agate, and the most famous cameo from antiquity, which belonged to Frederick II of Swabia and Lorenzo the Magnificent. In the mosaics section, the pieces from the House of the Faun at Pompeii are the most highly-prized in terms of quality, figurative richness, and the fame that followed their discovery. The most celebrated of them is the mosaic of Alexander, a copy of a famous Hellenistic painting, it is made from tiny tesserae and depicts the battle between Alexander the Great on horseback and Darius III, fleeing on his chariot.
Among the sculpted decorations from the Villa of Papyruses, the busts?of philosophers and men of letters are worthy of attention, as are the five dancing girls (Danaids) and the absolute masterpieces that are the famous bronze statues of the two athletes, a Hermes and the Drunken Satyr.
