Marble bust of rmperor Antoninus Pius, dressed in a military uniform, from the middle of the 2nd century CE. Scientists believe that the object could have been created during the early reign of the emperor (around 140 CE); could also be a replica.
The sculpture was found at the House of Jason the Great in Cyrenaica (Libya). You can now admire it in the British Museum.
