Description The style of this portrait, with its tightly coiled curls and thick hair over the ears, the individualized expression, and the absence of incision on the eyeballs, suggests that it was carved during the rule of one of the Flavian emperors: Vespasian, Titus, or Domitian (reigned 69-96 CE).
