Female bust

Inv. Scu 369

Bust of a young woman clad in a light chiton. The full, oval face is characterized by slanting eyes, tight lips and a receding chin.

The hair, parted at centre, is arranged in wavy locks which, tied up in braids, are coiled in a bun on the nape.

The bust has been ascribed to a period between the late Trajan and the early Hadrian period (110 – 130 AD).

Formerly in the collection of the cardinal Alessandro Albani, it was purchased for the Capitoline Museum in 1733.
