The Roman small bronze presented here is a particularly rare find in Lower Saxony. Small statuettes of gods and heroes are a mass product of the Roman Empire and its provinces, but very rare in free Germania. The heavily damaged figure, found in 2018, is addressed as Hercules due to its posture and nakedness.
The 3D scan by Formwerk3D shows particularly well the fine details of the figure as well as the later damage caused by agricultural equipment. The orange object shows the same data as the textured one, but in shaded view, to make the finer details and structures more visible.
The find was published by U. Bartelt in: Niedersachsenwelt, Ostfriesland Bd. 87; ed. Jan F. Kegler, 2020; Hercules in der Region Hannover. Zum Neufund einer römischen Bronzestatuette. pp. 179-182.
