Pseudo-Seneka; Roman copy of a head identified as a representation of Hesiod (?) placed on a statue of togatus (poet?; philosopher?; speaker?; Greek type); fourth quarter of the 1st century BC; marble; on loan from the Musée du Louvre; Ma 920; inv. no. Dep.4952 MNW
It is hard to say who the sculpture represents; however; the conventional pose; dress and the form of a scroll indicates a poet; speaker or philosopher. The theoretical possibility of identifying the statue with Seneca the Elder are now being disputed by the scientists.
