Inv. No. MR 71.

Brescia, Santa Giulia Civic Museum

Origin:
Found near the church S. Marco al Foro in 1867.
Description:
The head lacks the helmet, one of the atributes of the goddesá which would have covered the unworked part. The piece is a Roman copy of a Greek original in bronze and could have been a part of the cult statue worshipped in one of the cellae of the Capitolium.
