Marble portrait herm of Pericles, 2nd century AD. British Museum, London. Pericles, c. 495-429 BC
TEXT AT BRITISH MUSEUM retr:2007.09.04. [2017:moved].
Marble portrait bust of Perikles. Height:58,5cm Townley collection. GR1805.7-3.91 (sculpture 549)
The Athenian politician (died 429 BC).
Roman, 2nd century AD. Said to be from Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli, Lazio, Italy.

This is a Roman copy of an original portrait which was perhaps created in Perikles' own day, or shortly after his death. However, it probably bears little physical resemblance to Perikles' actual appearance, showing an ideal type of the mature soldier citizen, wearing a helmet pushed back on his head. The portratit is shaped as a 'terminal bust' for mounting on a square shaft of sthone. It is said to come from the Roman emperor Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli, near Rome. [...]
