    Hanover, Wallmoden Collection, on long-term loan to the Archaeological Institute of the Georg August University in Göttingen.

    From the collection of Palazzo Salviati in Rome.

    Head of the emperor Titus (r. AD 79-81), re-cut from a head of Nero.

    Produced by the restoration workshop at the Archaeological Institute (Ms. Jorun Ruppel). Modern: nose, right ear and edge of the left. The head is mounted on an ancient bust (not part of cast) to which it does not originally belong.
