This statuette created in precious silver depicts Jupiter, king of the gods of the Roman Pantheon. In keeping with his elevated status, the god is shown with a full head of thickly curled hair, adorned with a crown. His head is turned sharply to the right with its glance cast straight ahead, as if he is momentarily scrutinizing one of his subjects. The lowered hand of his right arm holds a thunderbolt, rendered in the traditional Roman fashion, which is the exclusive attribute of Jupiter, thereby insuring the identification of this figure.
