Bust of a rhetorician, 200-235 CE, Asia Minor, Smyrna (‘Diana’s Bath’), marble, Cinquentenaire Museum (Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap from Autocad.

This portrait is well-preserved with the nose intact, the polish of the flesh on the forehead is still visible, and the bust, the tablet and its base are original. Moreover, the quality of the execution is remarkable. The figure has a bare chest and one shoulder is covered with a drape in the Greek fashion, thus indicating him as a scholar.
