WE always like it when we see a "new" ancient Antinous sculpture. A museum curator friend of ours saw this bust of Antinous in Stuttgart, apparently a new addition.
Antinous alabaster bust (2nd Century AD) at the Landesmuseum Württemberg in Stuttgart, Germany. Photo courtesy of the Munich Egyptian Museum Ägyptisches Museum München. Provenance not given, but it is presumed by the museum to have been sculpted in Egypt. It was acquired on the art market in 1974 through arts funding from the German Lottery.
