Caligula, 16 March 37 - 24 January 41 A.D., Carthago Nova, Hispania Tarraconensis
In older references the bust of Salus is identified as that of Caesonia, 4th wife of Caligula. The female bust has also been identified as Antonia by Grant and Livia by Etienne. Beltran identifies Salus as the tutelary goddess of Carthago Nova and does not link the features to any member of the royal family.
