It seems that it derives from a find made in the sixteenth century, which then made a sensation: during the excavations of the Baths of Agrippa to the Pantheon, wanted by the Cardinal Della Valle, was found a golden imperial crown that surrounded the eye of the vault. The crown appeared to be similar to certain donuts that were eaten in Rome at the time.
