Roman Bronze Imago Clipeata of Emperor Claudius

Please take a look at this rare glimpse of a Julio Claudian Princeps
in bronze (other than coinage). Claudius is seen showing the office
of Pontifex Maximus, note radiate imagery as well as being flanked by
simpuvium (dipper) and lituus (wand). I normally would not send out
general emails but this is a rare piece indeed!

Joe,

It is indeed a very beautiful piece, as are all the other "highlights". I did not know that such museum quality items were available in the low six figures, not that I can afford them!

Please do not hesitate to post interesting links any time you find them!
