Depicting a mature, bearded man with thick hair and a penetrating gaze. The figure is idealised in line with Greek sculpture, but with individualised features. The use of pierced pupils is used to give the face a natural look, a device that became fashionable from Hadrian’s portraits onwards. Hadrian also initiated the fashion of depicting figures with beards.
