Plaster cast of the head of Augustus in the Louvre (MA 1246). The original, together with other imperial portrait statues from Cerveteri, was found in 1840. However, since it was not acquired by the Papal State, it remained in private hands; as part of the Campana collection it ended up in Paris. The portrait belonged to a seated statue similar to those of Tiberius and Claudius; identified only recently, its cast was put on display in 1988.
