The Court of Neptune Fountain is a group of bronze sculptures made by Roland Hinton Perry in 1897–98.[1] Jerome Connor may have assisted in their manufacture.[2]

The sculptures are located at the Library of Congress, at Independence Avenue and 1st St S.E. Washington, D.C.[3] The god Neptune is flanked by figures of the Tritons, each blowing a conch shell.[4]
