The turn of the head is similar to the type of the Paris-Lansdowne (C. Giroire and D. Roger, eds., Roman Art from the Louvre, 2007, p. 84, no. 25), while the rich, centrally parted hair recalls the head of a statue in Kassel: P. Gercke and N. Zimmermann-Elseify, Antike Steinskulpturen und neuzeitliche Nachbildungen in Kassel, 2007, pp. 176ff., no. 51. For another head of a youth with Phrygian cap also see Sotheby's, New York, June 7th, 2007, no. 46.
