Roman Sculptor

Emperor Clodius Albinus

193 - 196. Marble, 88 x 69 cm.

This work is particularly valuable as one of the very few surviving effigies of emperor Clodius Albinus (193-197 A.D.), who fought Septimus Severus with the support of the Senate in 196 A.D., and managed to continue as emperor of Gaul from 193 to 196 A.D. Albinus´ hair is inspired by portraits from the court of Marcus Aurelius.
