Roman marble portrait of a mature woman. Her elaborate hairstyle included a high hairpiece over the forehead that was cut from a separate piece of marble — now lost — and attached with pins (traces of these are visible as the oxidized marks in this photo). Dated to the late Trajanic or early Hadrianic period: ca. A.D. 100-120 (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Rogers Fund, inv. 14.130.7).
