Title

Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius

Description

This imposing statue of the emperor Marcus Aurelius on horseback is more than life-sized. It is unique in that it depicts the emperor without weapons or armor [I'm not quite sure about the latter]; rather, he is portrayed as the harbinger of peace. It is located in the Capitoline Museums.
