Roman portrait of a young male.

Ca. 140—160 CE.
Inv. No. 2000.12.1.

New Haven, Yale University Art Gallery.

Roman marble portrait of a young male. Dated by the Yale University Art gallery to ca. A.D. 140—160. YUAG inv. 2000.12.1. A crown of foliage is depicted on the deeply-drilled hair; thus the museum suggests that the portrait is that of an Olympic victor of the Roman period.
