Roman bust dated to period of Julio-Claudian dynasty

Roman bust dated to the period of the Julio-Claudian dynasty (27 BCE – 68 CE). The object is made of marble and shows a middle-aged man, perhaps even Sextus Pompey, son of Pompey the Great and rival of Octavian Augustus and Mark Antony during the civil war.

According to the specialist, the artifact was stolen from the Pompeianum in Aschaffenburg, Germany, by an American soldier during World War II. By chance, in 2018, a sculpture was found in a thrift store in Texas, which was on sale for $34.99. In 2023, the object is to appear again on the exhibition in Aschaffenburg, Germany.
