A ROMAN BRONZE FIGURE OF A WARRIOR
Circa 1st-2nd Century A.D.
Perhaps from a tripod, depicted clean-shaven and nude but for his high crested Attic helmet, standing upon a plinth with his weight on his advanced right leg, his left leg relaxed and bent at the knee, his torso slightly turned to the right, his head to his left, his hair pulled back from his face under the helmet, holding a sword under his left arm, gripping the blade in his flexed fingers, a long shaft in back joined to the figure by four struts, the plinth pierced at the center, the left side and at the back for attachment
