Hercules

75 - 100. Marble. Room 073

Hercules, who was deified for his superhuman labours, wears a hero’s band around his hair. With his beard and dignified appearance he resembles the Greek philosophers who venerated the hero as a model to be followed. The head reproduces a Greek statue of the late fourth century BC.
