Ancient Figures and Statues

Roman, Bronze Balsamarium of Antinous, c. 135 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
A balsamarium contained scented oils and perfumes associated with a burial.

If the features of the face do not immediately recall Antinous, the abundant hair falling in generous locks deep on the neck points towards an undeniable intention to represent him, and allows accurate dating. The silver inlaid eyes and the drilled pupils add to the vivacity of the portrait.

This style of bronze balsamarium must have been fairly common in the period after the death of Antinous, as several are known. For similar pieces (this piece is also shown), see -

It was considered important to have at least one boat model in the tomb, often several, and the wealthiest were supplied with fleets. A fishing boat such as this would offer the owner a source of food and the ability to travel in the afterlife, most importantly the dead man would be able to make his pilgrimage to Abydos.
