The most credible image of Julius Caesar
Most reliable image of Julius Caesar

The only bust of Julius Caesar that has survived to our time and was made during his lifetime. To this day, this image of Caesar is considered the most reliable. This is evidenced by irregular dictator head shape.

The bust was discovered by Lucien Bonaparte in 1825 during excavations at the forum in Tusculum (Italy).
