Marble bust of Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus (17 BCE – 40 CE), Roman general and consul from 32 CE. He was the grandson of Mark Antony, the husband of Agrippina the Younger and the father of the future emperor Nero.

Domitius was active on the political scene of Rome during the rule of Octavian Augustus, Tiberius and Caligula. Belonging to the Julio-Claudian dynasty gave him the opportunity to hold high offices; at the same time, however, he was exposed to the threat of the emperors, e.g. Tiberius, thanks to the praetorian prefect Macron.
