A ROMAN BRONZE FINIAL IN THE FORM OF PAPOSILENUS
Circa 1st Century A.D.
Perhaps an actor as Paposilenus, the paunchy figure wrapped in a long cloak, his left arm bent at his side, his right arm bent with his hand holding his right shoulder within the cloak, with a wreath around his bald pate, with exaggerated features, large pointed ears, and beard of long wavy locks, wearing boots, standing on an octagonal base, a pointed projection at the top of his head, perhaps for attachment
