Despite the similarities with securely identified portraits of the young Nero (compare a statue in the Louvre: K. de Kersauson, Musée du Louvre. Catalogue des portraits romains, vol. 1, 1986, p. 210f., no. 99), the head of the present statue is more likely to be a private portrait inspired by the Imperial image: the shoes (calcei) have only one set of straps, not two sets, as would be expected from members of the Imperial family (for calcei see H. Goette, Jahrbuch des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts, vol. 103, 1988, pp. 449ff.). No direct parallels can be found for the draping of the mantle, perhaps a type of toga.

For Sir John Dick (1719–1804), British Consul at Livorno between 1754–1776, see Bignamini and Hornsby, op. cit., p. 263f. Another statue owned by Dick and illustrated by Cavaceppi (op. cit., pl. 29), a seated Muse, is untraced (evidently a Roman copy of the same type as that of a statue in the Vatican: W. Amelung, Die Sculpturen des Vaticanischen Museums, vol. 2, 1908, pp. 467ff., no. 270, pl. 51).
