Description

The likeness of a marble head on our cap nods to an ancient Roman portrait in The Met collection. The subject's fillet—a type of band commonly worn by athletes—suggests that it probably belonged to the statue of a victorious competitor. Made around A.D. 138–192 after a Greek bronze sculpture forged circa 450–425 B.C., the youth's polished flesh and stylized curls would have been particularly appealing to clients in the 2nd century A.D.—Roman reproductions often emphasized contemporary tastes.
