Bronze head of a man, thought to be from Cyrenaica, now in eastern Libya. Artist unknown; ca. 300 BC. Found beneath the cella of the temple of Apollo at Cyrene, Libya; now in the British Museum.

I wonder how it looked when new and not buried for 2300 years


  1. Given the date and location, perhaps a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty.
