In the upstairs gallery of the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY there is a whole section for Roman art.  Here are a few sculptures on the wall and a sarcophagus.  The sarcophagus looks more like a tub to me because is has a drain at one end a hole where it looks like water came in.  The stone carvings are amazing.
