Aphrodite (so-called Niobe).

Fine-grained marble.
Head — Roman copy of the 2nd century CE, bust — modern.
Inv. No. 8586.

Rome, Roman National Museum, Palazzo Altemps
(Museo nazionale romano, Palazzo Altemps)

Origin:
From the Ludovisi collection.
Description:

This portrait is known in the Ludovisi family inventories as Niobe, or niobid, a character in the Greek myth from the cycle about the sons of Leto. The bust is restored. The head bears traits and a hairstyle that are typical of the Aphrodite of Cnidos, so much so that it could have been the model for the seventeenth-cenlury restoration of the nearby statue of Aphrodite.
