Marcus Aurelius Bust (Green Bronze), is a reduction based on the marble original in the archaeological museum of Toulouse, Saint-Raymond Museum, France. Marcus Aurelius is shown wearing military armor featuring a Medusa on the chest. Marcus Aurelius Antoninus is one of the most famous Roman emperors (161 to 180 AD), who ruled with his adoptive brother, Lucius Verus, until Verus' death in 169, and with his son, Commodus, from 177. He was the last of the so-called Five Good Emperors, and among the Roman emperors he is called "The Philosopher".
The stone socle of this bust can have veinings of different color and size which can alter the final appearance of the bust.
