Statuette of Neptune
Roman copy of an eclectic work of the 1st century B.C.
Pentelic marble

The small size of this piece suggests that it was used in the decoration of a home. The model to which the sculpture refers was distantly influenced by the art of Polyclitus, but the facial features and the hairstyle identify the statuette as a copy of an eclectic work from the 2nd century A.D.

Provenance: Purchased in Rome
Inventory: Inv. MB 151
