Tiberius bust, reduction in bronze inspired by ancient bust originals. Tiberius (born Tiberius Claudius Nero), 42 BC – 37 AD, was Roman emperor from 14 AD until his death, and successor of the first emperor of Rome, Augustus. Tiberius was one of the greatest Roman generals, conqueror of Pannonia, Dalmatia, Raetia, Germania, and founder of the northern frontier. He is remembered as a dark, reclusive and sombre ruler who never really wanted to be emperor. Pliny the Elder called him "the saddest and gloomiest of men." After the death of his son in 23 AD, Tiberius became even more sad and aloof. In 26 AD he removed himself from Rome and left the administration his Praetorian prefects Lucius Aelius Sejanus and Quintus Naevius Sutorius Macro. When Tiberius died, he was succeeded by his grand-nephew and adopted grandson, Caligula.
The stone socle of this bust can have veinings of different color and size which can alter the final appearance of the bust.
