Marble head from a statue or bust. The head is in good condition. The man has a thick head of curly hair, a full beard and a straight moustache. The skull is broad and the style and modelling suggests a Greek subject. The head might be a portrait of a Greek ruler and it has been identified as Periander, tyrant of Corinth, after its association with named busts of the ruler. .
