History is free for research, artist impressions and photographs are owned. Copy and post in internet is thieving. Please don't do that, if the owner claims compensation that can get very expensive.
I checked only the Augsburg stone being in Google, a 10 second "research" I know it and others from books and visits.
Try Junkelman Reiter Roms Vol. 1 who shows some and has a good bibliography on Roman wagons. And is very good on sport chariots. Not to forget the travelling coaches.
Many books about Roman mosaics and stone memorials show pictures of Roman transport.
In Villa Romana del Casale there is a superb mosaic of a Roman animal transport with a heavy ox wagon. Two axles but massive wheels, no spokes. Others show covered transport wagons with spoked wheels.
But none shows the "overhead axle support" the Perry wagon has. It is superb for Rose wars and similar.
