When it comes to archaeology, it is sometimes much more of interest, it's a way of life! How many artifacts, past and civilizations have left indelible traces over time of culture and history .... And the numismatics!? Is this the other history of human civilization? Whether you are an expert in this area or you just simply interested in it, you certainly have something to show or tell us!

Description: Portrait of a Woman (170 - 200)

This portrait of a woman still young and wrinkle-free is similar to a portrait of the Young Faustina (Faustina the Younger), who kept in Getty Museum. The identity of the model can not be guaranteed. The work was done in the Middle East last quarter of II-nd century AC.
Annia Galeria Faustina Minor or Faustina the Younger (125 - 175) is Roman Empress, the wife of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
