Highlights of the collection
Second quarter of the 1st century AD
Carved white marble
An iconic female statue related to the imperial cult found during the excavations of the Colonia Tarraco Forum, the centre of the city’s social, religious and political life.
It probably depicts a female personage from the gallery of statues of the Julio-Claudian family that would have decorated the basilica in the Forum of the Colonia. The style of the clothing is reminiscent of that of a statue of Livia from the Claudian era preserved in the Louvre.
