Deutsch: So genannter »Sulla«, freie Kopie (wohl augusteischer Zeit) von Bildnissen bedeutender Römer des 2. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. Wegen der zahlreichen Übereinstimmungen mit dem so genannten »Marius« (Maße, jähe Kopfwendung, geöffneter Mund, große Augen), sind diese zwei Statuen wohl als Paar (Bruder, Gegenspieler?) konzipiert und zusammen — etwa in einer Porträtgalerie — aufgestellt gewesen.
English: So-called “Sulla”, free copy (probably from the time of Augustus) after a portrait of an important Roman from the 2nd century BC. Because of many details this bust has in common with the so-called « Marius » (proportions, open mouth, large eyes), it has been suggested that both statues (brothers, adversaries?) were conceived and exhibited together.
Français : Pseudo-« Sylla », copie libre (sans doute époque augustéenne) d'un portrait de Romain important du IIe siècle av. J.-C. En raison des nombreux points communs avec le pseudo-« Marius » (proportions, tour de tête raide, bouche ouverte et gros yeux), on estime que ces deux statues (frères, adversaires ?) ont pu être conçues et exposées ensemble dans une galerie de portraits.
