Dadóforo de Porta Portese
16 Jun 2009

  • Estatua de Mitra o de un adepto del culto mitriaco.

  • Dadóforo de Porta Portese
    Andreu Abuín 

Marble, Roman artwork, 2nd–3rd century CE. From a Mithraeum outside Porta Portese in Rome, 1785.

Torchbearer, restored as a Paris. It may appear from the attitude, that he held the torch downwards with both hands; not cross-legged. Restorations: parts of face and attire, of the l. foot and trunk; the l.h. entirely.
