The Young Pompey
Portrait of Pompey the Great - Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, (29 September 106 BC – 28 September 48 BC).
Probably due to a Roman artist, this head is a replica of an archetype created by a Greek master. The hasty style of the portraiture doesn’t mask the sculptor’s attempt to represent the ambition of the young man.
