Portrait of a boy from the julio-claudian family
Sculpture
1st century A.D.
Luni marble

This small head, portraying a three-or four-year-old boy, came from the villa that Livia, the emperor Augustus’s wife, owned on the Via Flaminia, just outside Rome. The find site and the features of the face make it possible to identify the boy as a scion of the Julio-Claudian family.

Provenance: From Rome, Villa of Livia “ad gallinas albas” (Prima Porta)
Inventory: Inv. MB 194
