The Emperor Claudius

Fine Art Photo Print


This marble statue of Claudius (Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus), the fourth emperor of Rome, can be found in the Vatican Museum. He is portrayed in heroic pose as Jupiter, holding a scepter in his left hand and a libation dish in his right. He is shown barefoot, an indication of divinity. He wears a crown of oak leaves which is awarded for saving a fellow Roman citizen’s life. Roman emperors were awarded this mark of honor after Augustus was given it for ending the Roman civil wars. Claudius is accompanied by an eagle, as was Jupiter. Although the statue is idealized, the face is recognizably Claudius’.
