Period:Roman Period, Hadrian Reign:reign of Hadrian Date:A.D. 117â€“138 Geography:From Egypt Medium:Plaster, paint, glass Dimensions:h. 21 cm (8 1/4 in); w. 11.5 cm (4 1/2 in) Accession Number:00.2.10 This woman's high coiled braid recalls portraits of the Empress Sabina. The softer arrangement of the front parts of her hair most likely reflects a local adaptation. Wisps of hair that have escaped confinement are painted around her forehead. The matronly appearance of this woman is in keeping with second-century trends in all kinds of funerary portraiture, and the tendency of female masks of the time to adopt Roman-style facial features and hair more consistently than before has been observed.
