Description


This fragmentary head comes from an over-life-sized portrait bust or statue of Lucius Verus, co-emperor with 

Marcus Aurelius (AD 161 - 180). At the beginning of his reign, Verus was sent to the East to direct military 

operations against the Parthians, and although the war was concluded successfully in AD 166, his returning 

troops brought back the plague, which ravaged the Empire for several years thereafter. He is compared unfavorably 

with Marcus Aurelius by the ancient sources, but the portrait shown here has a leonine majesty that gives litle 

indication of his reputation as an idle and dissolute ruler. t is typical of Antonine style in its use of luxuriant 

drillwork in the hair and engraved eyes to dramatize the basically naturalistic image.
