Augustus wearing a toga

Late I a.C. century. White marble, 205 x 87 cm.

Two ancient fragments with a different origin were skilfully joined in the seventeenth century to create the statue. Augustus, clad in the toga of a Roman citizen, offers a sacrifice with his head covered, thereby demonstrating veneration of the gods. The portrait, less common than the other type in the Prado (E00119), offers a more realistic representation and a more natural hairstyle. Both portrait types were created at the beginning of Augustus´s rule.
