A photorealistic reconstruction of what the Roman emperor Tiberius (r. 14-37 CE) may have looked like. Pictured alongside the reconstruction are the busts and statuary used as references. From left to right and top to bottom these are the Carlsberg Glyptotek's bust; Royal Ontario Museum's bust; National Archaeological Museum's bust; and the “Lansdowne Tiberius”.

Based on contemporary and near contemporary descriptions, as well as archaeological evidence. Made using Photoshop and Artbreeder, a neural net tool.
