One of three portraits of Emperor Hadrian, the head from a colossal bronze statue is displayed in the halls of the museum.

The eyes are inlaid with glass and ivory, the beard and mustache have short wavy hair, while the head is covered with curly hair. It seems that it once had a crown. The head is the first portrayal of an emperor wearing a beard.

The museum keeps the other part of this statue in storage.

Dimensions:  Height 38.5 cm
