About

Our Nero Bust (Green Bronze) is a reduction inspired by Bust of Nero located in the Musei Capitolini, Rome. This bust depicts the young emperor with his characteristic overweight and neckbeard. Nero reigned from 54 to 68 AD focusing much of his attention on diplomacy, trade and the cultural life of the empire. He ordered the building of theatres and promoting athletic games. He even made public appearances as an actor, poet, musician and charioteer. In the eyes of traditionalists, this undermined the dignity and authority of his persona and office. His extravagant, empire-wide program of public and private works was funded by a rise in taxes that was much resented by the middle and upper classes. During his reign, various plots against his life were revealed and surpress. Nero's rule is usually associated with tyranny and extravagance. Most Roman sources, such as Suetonius and Cassius Dio, write overwhelmingly negative opinions of his personality and reign. Tacitus claims that the Roman people thought him compulsive and corrupt. Many Romans believed that the Great Fire of Rome was instigated by Nero to clear the way for his planned palatial complex, the Domus Aurea. He was said to have seized Christians as scapegoats for the fire and burned them alive, seemingly motivated not by public justice but by personal cruelty. Some modern historians question the reliability of the ancient sources on Nero's tyrannical acts. A few sources paint Nero in a more favorable light. There is evidence of his popularity among the Roman commoners, especially in the eastern provinces of the Empire, where a popular legend arose that Nero had not died and would return.
