Dionysus

75 - 100. White marble. Room 074

This Roman herm, which was probably made to decorate a theatre, uses an image of Dionysus in the form of a mask, created between 425 and 400 B. C. in Athens. At that time, it was usual to hang these masks, which only reproduce the god’s head, in the sanctuaries of Dionysus for his worship. The archaic hairstyle is also repeated in masks of the Classical period.
