Colossal statue of the Emperor Hadrian wearing a breastplate. The identification of the statue is based on the decoration of the breastplate (figures of Victory placing wreaths on a palladion - a statue of Athena with the she-wolf of Rome at the bottom). The statue was probably destined for export. 2nd century AD.
