The original location of the sculpture is unknown though it had been housed in the Lateran Palace since the 8th century until it was placed in the center of the
Piazza del Campidoglio by Michelangelo in 1538. The original is now indoors for
purposes of conservation. Marcus Aurelius ruled 161-180 C.E.
