The monumental equestrian bronze group of Marcus Aurelius, originally made for the Campidoglio, Rome, was the most important statue from antiquity to survive above ground. That may have been due, in part, to its erroneous identification as a portrait of Constantine the Great, the first Christian emperor. 

The great classical bronze is also among the first statues from Antiquity of which bronze reductions were made, from the Renaissance onwards. The first was executed by Filarete (now in Dresden), dedicated to Piero de' Medici in 1465.
