Greek marble. 1st cent. CE.
Inv. No. MR 2.

Brescia, Santa Giulia Civic Museum.

Found on the slope of the Cidneo hill in 1828.
The head lacks the helmet, one of the atributes of the goddes, which would have covered the unworked part. The piece is a Roman copy of a Greek original in bronze, perhaps by Phidias (5th cent. B.C.) and could have been a part of the cult statue worshipped in one of the cellae of the Capitolium.
