Description: Marble bust of Gaius Julius Caesar Vipsanianus.

Born in 20 BC Gaius (Caius) Julius Caesar Vipsanianus is the son of Julia, the only daughter of Emperor Augustus and Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. With his brother Lucius, he was adopted by his birth from his grandfather Augustus, who wanted to ensure his successor.
Thus, Gaius and Lucius are both appointed consuls and celebrated as "princes of youth". But fate broke the succession plans of Augustus. Lucius died in year 2 of our era and Gaius - 21 February 4 year during the campaign of Artagira in Armenia.

This portrait represents a boy of ten years, his face is elongated and is characteristic of Augustan classicism.
Atelier metropolitan, last decade BC.
