Archeology In The News Again

Whee! My favorite Roman made the news again!

Is it just me, or there is a lot of similarity between that and the famous bust of Cicero? maybe all older Romans looked the same. Definitely can see the family resemblance with Octavian, though.

One of the more emotive busts I've seen - wonderful lines. I don't know of that's from sitting in water for a few hundred years - but I am very impressed.

Amazing how an artifact that old -- sitting in a river, to boot -- has those lines beautifully preserved.

It's stone. It helps. :)
