Julius Caesar Bust in reduced size inspired by the emperor's busts in toga. This bronze bust depicts the most famous stateman of Ancient Rome at his prime of political power. Gaius Julius Caesar began a dinasty of Roman emperors that would rule the empire for centuries. The Senate bestowed him the title of Imperator in 44 BC, although he preferred to be publicly named by his own name Caesar. Although he technically only acted as dictator of Rome, as of today the names of Caesar and Imperator are synonyms of emperor. Julius Caesar was born in 100 BC, the youngest child of a proconsul and Aurelia Cotta. Together with Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus and Marcus Licinius Crassus, he was part of the first Triumvirate. He was a brilliant general who inspired his men, with them he conquered Gaul and won the Civil War among the most celebrated achievements. As politician, he established important civil and social reforms during his career, named dictator in perpetuity, and finally was assassinated by a group of senators on 15th of March in 44 BC (Ides of March).
The stone socle of this bust can have veinings of different color and size which can alter the final appearance of the bust.
