This Roman work is based on a classical Greek model by the School of Polyclitus (c. 400 B. C.) known as the Dresden Ephebe. The statue of the athlete was transformed into the god of wine in the Roman period and a new head was added with a Dionysian band, an ivy wreath and grapes. The hands holding a goblet and grapes were added in the seventeenth century.

This may be the head of one of the so-called “mute servants” that decorated Roman residences.
