Highlights of the collection
2nd century AD
94 x 55 cm
Carved white marble
A sculpture that would have been part of the nymphaeum that decorated the schola of the Tarraco collegium fabrum, the seat of the corporation of building workers.
It represents the Child Hercules dressed anachronicistically in the skin of the Nemean lion and stepping on a goose, the symbolic animal of the goddess Juno, his enemy.
