This drawing numbered VII/3 in the Burlington-Devonshire Collection shows reconstructed facades and sections of the Baths of Agrippa. The baths were started in 25 BC but were not completed until after the Aqua Virgo was built in 19 BC. The baths were decorated with many works of art and the Apoxymenos of Lysippus stood outside.
