Bust of a rhetorician, around 200-235 CE, Asia Minor, Smyrna (Baths of Diana), marble. Musee du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with Capturing Reality.
This portrait is preserved, as its counterpart, in an exceptional way: the nose is intact, the polish of the flesh on the front still visible, the bust, the tablet and its base those of origin. In addition, the quality of execution is remarkable. both men are bare-chested, with one shoulder covered with a Greek-style drape, indicating their desire to be represented as scholars.
