Fragmentary Marble Head of a Helmeted Soldier

ca. 69-79 AD

Flavian

The Romans devised two new forms of public monument to celebrate their military victories—the triumphal arch and the column. The latter are only found in Rome itself (and later in Constantinople, the New Rome), but triumphal arches were built in many cities throughout Italy and the provinces. They were often decorated with reliefs depicting Roman troops in various activities. This fragment may come from one such relief.
