Bust of the so-called Pseudo-Seneca

Code B124

Cast of the roman bust from the end of the 1st century b.C. found in Herculaneum in 1754. In the past the portrait was attributed to the famous philosopher Lucio Anneo Seneca; however, scholars currently agree that the portrait may be that of Hesiod. The original bronze of excellent artistic quality is now kept in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples.
Replica in patinated and hand painted bronze resin, as imitation of the original artwork.
