dc.descriptionOverall view showing the right side; Roman, 2nd century AD copy of a lost Greek original of around 440-430 BC. This is a Roman copy of an original portrait which was perhaps created in Perikles' own day, or shortly after his death. However, it probably bears little physical resemblance to Perikles' actual appearance, showing an ideal type of the mature soldier citizen, wearing a helmet pushed back on his head. The portrait is shaped as a 'terminal bust' for mounting on a square shaft of stone. It is said to come from the Roman emperor Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli, near Rome. It was later part of the collection of Charles Townley. Source: British Museum [website]; http://www.britishmuseum.org (accessed 6/14/2009)en_US
