Discovered in a quarry near Rome in 1671, this portrait was purchased by Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici (1617-75) and entered the Gallery in 1676. Its facial features are those of Antinous, lover of the Emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD), known for his premature and somewhat mysterious death in the waters of the Nile in 130 AD.
