Description

This work is a variant on the so-called Ludovisi Cicero, a bust in the Uffizi, Florence, that was long-believed to represent the famous Roman orator, but in fact appears to represent an unknown intellectual from the late Roman Republic or early Empire. This interpretation may date as late as the 20th century, and may have been assembled from separate parts.
