Athena Albani Cast
Athena wearing a wolf-head cap, and aigis decorated with a head of Gorgo.
She once held a spear in her right hand and perhaps had a shield on her left arm.
The head may not belong with the body.
Copy of a marble statue composed of a head placed on a body found separately.
The head and body are from versions of a Greek original of about 430-420 BCE.
They were both found at Tivoli, have been joined together and are now in Rome, Villa Albani, inv. 1012.
The statue is of the type known as "Albani".
