Portrait Head of a Man

Asia Minor, mid-5th century
Marble, Height 28.5 cm

Marble head once belonging to a full-length statue (indicated by the folds of clothing still visible on the back), probably an official. The elongated and bearded face, cap-like hair, and exaggerated staring eyes (with U-shaped pupils) are all characteristic of portraits from the Late Antique period. Nose missing.
