Statue of Agrippina.

Basanite. 1st century CE.
Inv. No. S 1882.

Rome, Capitoline Museums, Centrale Montemartini Museum, II. 44
(Roma, Musei capitolini, Museo Centrale Montemartini).

From the excavation sites for the military hospital on the Caelian Hill (1885).
The head placed on this statue is a plaster cast of the so-called “Head of Copenhagen”. The way the head fits onto the torso in a praying pose relates the figure to Agrippina, Claudius’ niece and wife. Inspired by the late fifth — early fourth century prototypes, the statue was dedicated in the temple of Claudius on the Caelian Hill.
