Marble portrait bust of a woman
This young woman has a hair arrangement made popular by Julia Domna, wife of the emperor Septimius Severus (r. A.D. 193–211) and mother of the emperor Caracalla (r. A.D. 211–217). Parted at the center, long locks framed the face, covering the ears and falling almost to the shoulders before looping back to form an enormous bun at the back of the head.
Date:ca. A.D. 193–211
Dimensions:H. 26 in. (66 cm)
