Although no attribute is preserved, the cloak pulled over the head would suggest that this represents the god Saturnus. Of obscure origins, possibly an import from Etruria, Saturnus was an agricultural god, associated with the Greek god Kronos. He had a temple in the Forum at the base of the Capitoline Hill. He normally holds a hooked knife or a cornucopia in one hand, a patera in the other. His festival, the Saturnalia, was the merriest of the year, when gifts were exchanged and slaves were allowed temporary liberties.
