Roman marble bust of a young man. Scientists suspect that it is a funeral portrait, intended to show the deceased in a heroic and dignified manner. The marble from which the object was made, was obtained near Aphrodisias, in ancient Caria (present-day Western Turkey).
The sculpture is dated to the middle of the 2nd century CE. It is located at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
