Roman Lady.

Marble. 30—50 CE.
Height 36 cm.
Inv. No. 754.

Copenhagen, New Carlsberg Glyptotek
(København, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek).

Acquired in 1891. Possibly found in the Licinian Tomb.

76. Roman Lady

In both facial form and hairstyle, this portrait has many points of close similarity with Agrippina Minor — but no such identification can be ascertained.
Original: Claudian era.

I.N. 754.
Marble. H. 0.36.

From the posterior portion of the portrait, a cylinder (measuring 6.0 x 12.3 cm.) has been drilled out. In the last century, a restorer used 2.5 cm. from this very piece for the fabrication of a new nose and a new upper lip. Acquired in 1891, through the mediation of Helbig. The portrait was presumably found within The Licinian Tomb.
