Male bust

Inv. Scu 348

Male bust, cut down at the chest. The head is briskly turned to left. The elongated face with prominent cheekbones is characterized by large, almond-shaped eyes, which are marked arched eyebrows, hooked nose and thin, slightly parted lips.

On the forehead the hair is arranged in short locks neatly combed to right.

The bust, datable to the early Tiberian age, was purchased for the Capitoline Museum from the collection of cardinal Alessandro Albani in 1733.
