A Roman Bronze Balsamarium - For Sale

A Roman Bronze Balsamarium
Price: $16000.00
In the form of a bust of a youth, depicted nude, his hair a mass of thick echeloned locks falling to the nape of his neck, wearing a necklace with a central pendant, his head turned slightly to the left, his large almond-shaped eyes with the pupils indicated, with thin lips and a rounded chin, the base of the figure with two parallel rings, the vessel lid hinged at the base of the head between two projecting loops. Although a provincial work, the broad chest and distinctive hair suggests this may portray Antinos, the young favorite of the Emperor Hadrian.
