Ca. 10. White marble.
On display elsewhere

A member of the Numidian royal family and King of Mauretania, Juba II (52 BC-AD 23) was a cultured and fully romanised client king. Educated in Rome, he married the daughter of Mark Anthony and Cleopatra. Juba was a distinguished scholar, geographer and historian. His idealised portraits always show him as a beardless youth wearing the headband typical of Hellenistic rulers.
