Dacian helmets depicted as trophies.
#1
I keep coming across old copper plate engravings of Dacian trophies from Roman monuments, but I am curious to see the original carvings that they are based on. These 18th C engravings are supposedly composite images of elements taken from the cubic base of Trajan's Column. Does anyone have or know where I can find photos of the relevant sculpture?

Thanks!

"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867
