Drusus the Younger

I century. Marble.
Room 071

The son and heir of Tiberius, Drusus the Younger was portrayed from his father’s assumption of imperial power in 14 A. D., until his own violent death at the hands of his wife in 23 A. D. The realism of his facial features pays tribute to the Republican tradition of the gens Claudia, the patrician family to which he belonged.
