A poster with facial reconstructions of Roman emperors who ruled during the Principate, from the reign of Augustus (r. 27 BCE-14 CE) to Carinus (r. 283-285 CE).

These photorealistic reconstructions are only best guesses at how their subjects may have appeared, based on literary and artistic evidence. Some artistic license has been taken to fill in certain details that ancient sources failed to note. Made by Daniel Voshart, using Photoshop and Artbreeder, a neural net tool.
