Male bust

Inv. Scu 354

Male bust, cut off at the chest. The portrai features a young man with the head turned to the right.

The face, full of vigour, is characterized by slanting eyes and thin, tight lips.

The hair neatly follows the profile of the forehead and is arranged in slightly curling locks.

This bust,dated between the end of the Augustan age and the age of Tiberius, was purchased for the Capitoline Museum from the collection of cardinal Alessandro Albani in 1733.
