I. N. 751
Marble. H. 0.39.
The tip of the nose is broken off and is missing. At the back of the head, a portion of the hair has been attached. The top crown was already attached in ancient times. This rather flat piece has been executed in quite a rough manner. When it is removed, it becomes apparent that there is a cylindrical piece of marble measuring 5.5 × 5.0 cm which has been drilled out from the head. At one time, this piece served as the material for a new nose. Only a portion of the material was used and thereafter, the cylinder was put back in its place again. The lower left part of the neck section is broken off and is missing.
Acquired in 1887 from Count Tyszkiewicz’s collection in Rome. Possibly found in The Licinian Tomb.
