Limestone bust. A veiled woman wearing an elaborate head-band, earrings and necklace of beads. From a sculpture set in a tomb at Palmyra, Syria, about AD 80-120. The woman's hairstyle mimics Roman imperial portraits of the age of Claudius and Nero (AD41-68), but the lavish jewellery is typical of the turn of the century.
