I would not call this picture 'manneristic' as that word suggests that a certain non-realistic aspect was intently added to the picture, as that was the fashion then. This lovely portrait
should be seen in the very long Greco-Roman tradition of sculpture
and, indeed, would be pinned down by experts to belong to the third century.
If I were to meet prince Philippus tomorrow, I would at once recognize him from this portrait
, which would be extremely difficult in the case of Galerius
, as their portraits
WERE done in a manneristic way!
Treasure your coin!
