Marble statue of a member of the imperial family
This statue and the similar work, 2003.407.8 a, b are important additions to the small number of standing half-draped male figures known today that were part of Julio-Claudian dynastic commemorative groups. Statues of members of the imperial family, both living and already deceased, were often displayed together in public spaces such as the forum of a city, a basilica, or the theater.
