Roman Empire vs. Aztec Empire When comparing the Roman and Aztec Empire, it is clear to see similarities and differences within each civilization. Between government, religion, warfare, remarkable similarities defined two of the greatest civilizations. The differences such as social structure and economy are more prevalent between each empire. The Aztecs were a civilization that originated in Mexico. The center of their civilization was the Valley of Mexico, a huge oval basin about 7,500 ft. above sea level.
The building is found in Rome and is believed that it was commission by Marcus Agrippa during Augustus ' time. The inscription on the building of the Pantheon says “M•AGRIPPA•L•F•COS•TERTIUM•FECIT” which means “Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, the third time consul, built this” (MacDonald, 2002, p. 45). Later on, the Pantheon was rebuilt by Hadrian during the year 125AD. Historically, the Pantheon is constructed as a dedication to the twelve gods of Ancient Romans where it was believed that Romulus rose to heaven on the spot. (MadDonald, 2002).
Both Mesopotamian and Egyptian religion was polytheistic (belief in many gods), and the religion was an important part of their life. Gods in Mesopotamia and Egypt were identified with forces of nature. Both Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilians believed in afterlife and buried tools with a dead body.

The pieces that I will be analyzing are the Head of an Akkadian Ruler, 2250-2200 BCE and Thutmose’s Nefertiti, 1353-1535 BCE. I personally think that these two pieces represent an eerie naturalism, which also makes them different based on their facial features, abstract patterning, and the masculinity and femininity. The piece that I am analyzing is the Head of an Akkadian Ruler that was created between the times 2250-2200 BCE, found in the ancient Mesopotamian city Nineveh, which is located in modern day Iraq. The head is what survives today of a life size hollow-cast sculpture, because it was destroyed in antiquity. It is said that a group known as the Medes, that “occupied the land south of the Caspian Sea sacked the city in 612
