Did You Know?

This body once included a separately made head and arms.


From 1929 until 1973, this toga-clad body was displayed with a portrait head of Vespasian (recarved from Nero) that did not originally belong to it. Several details indicate a mismatch: the surfaces and proportions differ, and the head projected awkwardly forward even after modern recarving of the neck to fit into the body cavity. Aspects of the toga also suggest that it was sculpted later than the head.
