Italian police recover Roman statue stolen from Pompeii

archaeology:

The head of an ancient Roman statue that could be of the mother of Emperor Nero has been recovered after being missing for decades, Italian police said on Thursday.

The funerary piece was stolen between 25 and 30 years ago from Pompeii, a Roman town that was buried by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD and is now one of Italy’s most famous ancient sites.

..

The statue dates from between 100 B.C and 50 A.D when Rome was at its most powerful as the capital of a world empire and was found after an investigation into the art market by the military police of Piacenza in northern Italy.

The Department of Culture and Archaeology in Parma have judged it to be of “enormous interest” and likely to be of Agrippina the Younger, according to police, who said they did not know ther whereabouts of the body of the statue.

The Roman empress was one of the most prominent women of her time and the mother of Nero, an emperor famed for brutality. Some historical accounts say that Nero had his powerful mother killed.

Police said the terracotta head had been hidden for years by a dentist in Parma, who had tried to sell it but couldn’t because it was too conspicuous as a stolen work.

The head was recovered after the 62-year-old tried to sell it through an antiques dealer from Piacenza aged 36, who accidentally alerted police as he tried to find a buyer. Both are now charged with receipt and possession of archaeological goods.

We can only presume her fate. very foreboding portrait in retrospect.


Even though her homeland was being overtaken my Nazis she still has a smile. Beautiful one at that. Love her style too

One of the greatest freedoms is truly not caring what everyone else thinks of you.

Apparently archivists are messy and organized. Sounds like I’d fit right in. :)

The Boys of Fall.

  • One of the greatest songs that Kenny Chesney has made. It describes my school (Southern Columbia) to a T. We were/are a huge football school where football is religion. While I went to high school there we were 5 time state champs. Our all-star player, Henry Hynoski, now plays for the NY Giants. (GO HENRY) Me and my girlfriends always swooned over him and his amazing football skills, but who wouldn’t. =)

Greatest Movie On Earth

So I’m watching 8 seconds, an amazing country movie about a bull rider who becomes the world champion. The intensity, love, and thrill that this movie provides is utterly fantastic. I wish that directors and producers still made movies like this one! 

Have you seen this movie? If you haven’t you should go rent it or find it on Netflix. If your a country person and haven’t seen it, it will make you love the country even more and wish you were a bull rider or knew one. =)
