Here are presented some results of a research into luxury furniture of Roman Aquileia, in order to achieve a volume of the Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani on the subject. Among the furnishings in marble and stone are analyzed some fragments of a table-support shaped like a club of Hercules, which belongs to a rare type; in the appendix the list of findings of this type is updated with new examples. Roofed spherical dials – instruments for measuring time, but also pieces of furniture – are numerous in the city and neighboring areas, and, based on the geographical diffusion and the material employed, local production has been hypothesized. Finally, an interesting marble support table at the Museum of Udine, shaped like a herm, whose provenance from Aquileia is not certain, may be the only proof of the arrival of an elegant type well known in Central Italy.
