The head is of slightly rosy white marble, delicate work; the red marble bust. The crown, formed of leaves and clusters of ivy, clearly characterizes this figure. (Rachou, 1912).
According to Du Mege, this beautiful head was also discovered in Martres and placed with Bacchic heads which is the object of the previous notice, in the episcopal palace of Rieux. The corresponding torso was found and transported around 1860 in the cabinet of Victor de Frézalz, advisor to the Parliament of Toulouse, also a connoisseur and collector of antiquities. (D. C. in Toulouse and antiquity found in the eighteenth century, page 22).
