Pollio Fountain

A text in the museum says: "The Pollio Monument was located to the east of the Domitian Square and adjacent to the west side of the State Agora. It was built by the stepson of G. Sextilius Pollio in an area designated by the government to honour his valuable donations to the city: an aqueduct and the Basilica in the State Agora. Only its foundation part survived.
A Fountain of Domitian was erected in 92-93 AD to the south of the Pollio Monument, the façade facing the Domitian Square was decorated with statues brought from other monuments." An example was a group of Odysseus and his comrades and Polyphemos, the one-eyed giant who was blinded by them. During an earlier visit the group was reconstructed, this had changed somewhat in 2015.

In view of this text I am not certain if the objects shown here stem from the Pollio Monument or the Domitian Fountain. At least they were in the proximity.
