Marble portrait bust of a woman


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

This woman wears a stola and palla wrapped around her shoulders. A separate marble piece in the form of a bun was originally attached at the back of the head. The arrangement of the hair is like that worn by Faustina the Younger, wife of Marcus Aurelius, around the middle of the second century A.D.
