Following a year-long conservation project and subsequent exhibition, this over-life size bronze portrait of Tiberius from Herculaneum remains on view at the Getty Villa. Marking the two thousandth anniversary of Tiberius's accession as Emperor, the statue is displayed in a gallery devoted to Men in Antiquity (209). There he stands in the company of busts of other Roman emperors, including his predecessor Augustus and successor Caligula.
