Statue of Agrippina.

Basanite. 1st century CE.
Inv. No. MC 1882.

Rome, Capitoline Museums, Museum Montemartini (Centrale Montemartini), II. 44
(Musei capitolini, Centrale Montemartini)

Origin:
From the excavation sites for the military hospital on the Caelian Hill (1885).
Description:
The head placed on this statue is a plaster cast of the so-called “Head of Copenhagen”. The way the head fits onto the torso in a praying pose relates the figure to Agrippina, Claudius’ niece and wife. Inspired by the late fifth — early fourth century prototypes, the statue was dedicated in the temple of Claudius on the Caelian Hill.
