Built during the 4th century by Emperor Constantine as a mausoleum for his daughter, Mausoleo di Santa Costanza remains one of the earliest Christian buildings with a central dome. The interior mosaics, once a key component of the mausoleum's decorations, no longer exist. The ambulatory contains two apses, each with mosaics depicting Christ Pantocrator, probably dating back the 5th and 7th centuries.
