Abstract – The article deals with an ivory plaque, partially restored from many fragments but still lacking several parts, found during the excavations carried out in 2000 in the Roman Forum, in the area close to the Temple of Saturn. The subject, style and significance of the iconographies represented, divided into at least three decorated bands, refer to the sphere of the eastern divinities Magna Mater and Attis, together with evocation of the Heavens with representation of the Moon (Luna), in a combination of pagan iconographies probably executed in the second half of the 6ᵗʰ century, in the period of the “Pagan Revival”. The discovery of the plaque within a building of unclear function probably linked to the Aerarium, along with the remains of the entablature of Saturn’s Temple dating back to the restoration ordered by the Senator Vettius Agorius Praetextatus, suggests identification as the facing of an element adorning the same Temple and belonging to the same phase.
