Istanbul, Archaeological Museum

Origin:
Found at Pergamon.
Description:
Roman marble portrait identified by the Istanbul archaeological museum (inv. 2164 T) as representing Agrippina the Elder. Found at Pergamon. The break and discoloration at the level of the mouth creates a sorry effect for an otherwise well-preserved sculpture.
