This head recalls a portrait of Alexander the Great at the Getty (see p. 25 in K. Lapatin and K.B. White, eds., The J.Paul Getty Museum, Handbook of the Antiquities Collection). The round, fleshy face and curling leonine locks also recall a bust thought to be the god Eubuleus, found in Eleusis and now in Athens (see no. 555, in N. Kaltsas, Sculpture in the National Archaeological Museum, Athens). It has been hypothesized that this Eubuleus head is also an idealized portrait of Alexander rather than a depiction of the god.
