Marcus Junius Brutus (?)

70 - 100. White marble.
Galería Jónica Planta Principal Norte

Brutus (85-42 BC) is a controversial figure; an example of a traitor but also a paradigm of republican heroism due to his participation in the plot to assassinate Julius Caesar in order to check his imperial ambitions. This Flavian bust is thought to depict Brutus on the basis of comparison with his appearance on the denarius of the Ides of March, minted in 44 BC. In the 19th century it was catalogued as a slave or peasant.
