Head of a Roman Youth

AD 140-170

Roman Imperial

This strikingly handsome and sensitive portrait head in the plastic Hadrianic-Antonine style of the mid-2nd century A.D. is similar to a portrait of the young Marcus Aurelius in the Capitoline Museum, Rome. It may represent a prince of the imperial family, one of the children of Antoninus Pius.
