Cf. E. Simon, The Kurashiki Ninagawa Museum, Mainz, 1982, pp. 244-246, no. 168, for a marble statue of a togatus from Rome or Ostia. This almost identical but more complete statue is of "a Roman citizen of patrician descent", holding a scroll in his hand indicating "he is about to make a speech in the court, before the senate or on the occasion of a funeral. The head might just as well have been that of an emperor as that of some official, traditional Roman clothing knew no difference."
