Description:
43. Antonia Minor
The identification is ensured through a resemblance to certain coins.
Antonia (36 B.C. — 37 A.D.) was the daughter of Octavia and Mark Antony. She was married with Drusus in c. 16 B.C.
The woman wears a chiton and a himation, which is draped over her left shoulder. Moreover, she wears a stola, which can he seen on the right shoulder.
Even though the portrait’s form is quite exceptional in relation to any of the other known portraits of Antonia, the correctness of identification ought to be insisted upon.
