Origin:
Found in the Via Statilia in Rome, near Esquilino, 1926.
Description:
This funerary relief from the via Statilia in Rome represents a married couple rendered with different styles. Whereas the husband’s portrait, according to the late republic portraiture style, is naturalistic, his wife’s features, topped by a complicated coiffure, are delicate but conventionally rendered.
