Greek marble. Late 1st — early 2nd cent. CE.
Inv. No. MR 71.

Brescia, Santa Giulia Civic Museum

Found near the church S. Marco al Foro in 1867.
The head lacks the helmet, one of the atributes of the goddesб 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.
