A super quick scan of a marble head of Germanicus from the British Museum this afternoon (17/08/17). Unfortunately he’s got a bit of a sun tan on his neck due to the bright lights in the room so that area didn’t come out as well as I had hoped.
“Marble head of Germanicus Roman, about AD14-20 From Egypt
Germanicus was the son of Antonia Minor (see so-called Clytie, King’s Library) and grandson of Livia. He was the obvious heir to Tiberius, but died on campaign in AD 19. One of his children became the emperor Caligula, who ruled AD 37-41.
In late antiquity, Christians broke the nose of the bust and carved a cross on the forehead.
