Roman Marble Head of a Man

Roman Marble Head of a Man

An ancient Roman small marble portrait head of a bearded man with wavy hair that is arranged in tight, drilled curls around his face. His features, expression, and distinctive cropped beard and mustache bear a convincing resemblance to the 2nd century AD Roman emperor Hadrian.

Ca. mid 2nd century AD.
Height: 3 1/4 in. (8.1 cm).
Very fine style.

Formerly in the Fabian de Montjoye collection, Paris, acquired in the 1990s; previously in an old French private collection.
