Greco-Roman 3rd – 1st Century BC Bust of Lady. Benghazi Libya

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Hellenistic (period between ancient Greece and Ancient Rome) Greek bust of an upper-class lady of fashion. She has ornate hairdressing with classic female features.  The coronet headdress with a larger part in the center tapering on each side is typical.  Whether this is a statue of Aphrodite is up for discussion.


Acquired and uncovered from 1963 through 1969 throughout Northern Africa, Libya specifically near Benghazi.

Personally examined by a western U.S. state museum director.  He has assured me that they are indeed original and not reproductions or facsimiles.
