Inside the Barberini Colonna Palace, at the top of the temple of Fortuna, is the Archaeological Museum of Prenestina which houses many relics from the city's cemeteries. Of particular importance is a large mosaic depicting the exotic landscape of the Nile 80 BC (dimensions 5.85 x 4.31 m) from a hall of the Republican Forum. It is one of the few examples of a Republican-era mosaic. The museum also houses one of the best preserved specimens of the sculptural group of the Capitoline Triad, which depicts Jupiter, Juno and Minerva together.
