Description

The statue, with no preserved head, represents a male standing figure, particularly well outlined, wearing a toga, the typical garment worn by Roman men. The toga is draped first on the left arm with thick folds, then it goes around the body and creates two large folds: the first, called umbo, is at the level of the chest, the second, named sinus, is on the legs and has lighter wrinkles. The right knee is slightly bent and is visible under the vest. The weight of the statue is balanced on the left leg. Both the arms are bent and parallel, but the right is only partially preserved. The left hand holds a scroll and the ring-finger is embellished by a ring. A cylindrical box to contain documents, called capsa, should have been represented as well, because part of the cover is still preserved.
The folding of the toga is sculptured in a very accurate and refined way and it is particularly realistic, with naturalistic light and shade effects. The marble used is probably from Greece and this element, together with the well execution of the sculpture, suggests a production made by a Neo-Attic atelier.
