Description:
Roman Marble portrait of an unknown male. The bust size, partially unclad torso, and hairstyle suggest a date to Trajan’s reign, while the beard suggests a Hadrianic date. Thus the sculpture can be dated to ca. 110-120, that is, late Trajanic or early Hadrianic. Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) Rogers Fund, inv. 13.231.1.
