Head of a Satyr


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This head possibly belonged to a grave monument. Circular holes in the head are probably for the insertion of horns, which along with the wreath identify the boy as a satyr, one of the followers of the Roman wine-god Bacchus. The upward gaze with spherical cavities indicating pupils date this piece to the Antonine period.
