Anonymous artist, Head of a Woman. This head has the highly polished surface distinctive of the Antonine period and a part of the original hairstyle at the nape of the neck, but the piece was drastically re-carved in the late 3rd to early 4th century. In the harsh economic climate of the late Roman period, earlier sculptures were often re-worked in order to save both marble and time. Original: 138-192. Recarved: late 3rd-4th century
