About the Object

This man was a significant public figure in ancient Roman society.  His toga-the traditional status garment symbolic of Roman citizenship-the scroll in his hand, and the box of scrolls at his feet mark his high status. He may have been one of the 300 Roman Senators who addressed important matters of civic law, religious practice, or foreign policy, all aspects of Roman life controlled by the Senate.
