CATALOGUE NOTE
According to Cesnola himself (op. cit., 1878, p. 229), he unearthed the present statue in Karavostasi on the site of
ancient Soli on Cyprus, on a slope extending up from the left bank of the river Clarios, "in the area" of a ruin which he
describes as "the foundations of a circular building with a cave beneath it, which seems to have been a little temple.
These foundations consist of huge blocks of limestone quarried from the neighbouring hills. In the area of this ruin I
found, besides several fragments of columns and capitals in marble and granite, an oblong marble slab with a Greek
inscription, much injured, but containing the names of Soli and of the Pro-Consul Paulus, most probably the Sergius
Paulus who is mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles. In the same area I discovered a headless figure of Cybele in
pure white marble. These maybe the ruins of a temple of Cybele." Several Roman temples were excavated
scientifically many decades later in Soli by a Finnish team of archaeologists (see A. Westholm, The Temples at Soli:
Studies in Cypriote Art during the Hellenistic and Roman Periods, Stockholm, 1936).
In a thoroughly documented indictment of the veracity and trustworthiness of Cesnola's account, Henri de Morgan (
op. cit., 1884) pointed out the following: a) an unpublished album entitled Photographs of Antiquities from the Island of
Cyprus, then in the possession of George R. Halm, contained a plate (LXVI) illustrating the present statue with a
hand-written note by Cesnola himself: "A headless marble statue of Kybele found at Salamine. Archaeological
Discoveries at Cyprus, 1869" (Salamis is 65 miles away from Soli); b) a German archaeologist in Cyprus named Max
Ohne-falsch Richter wrote to de Morgan that he knew someone in Larnaca who was ready to testify under oath that
the statue had been for a long time in his family before he gave it to Cesnola, and that it had been presumably found
on the island of Cyprus.

CATALOGUE NOTE
The present sculpture falls within a specific category of sleeping erotes classified as the Bergamo-Vienna type, which
is represented by seven other known examples (see M. Söldner, Untersuchungen zu liegenden Eroten in der
hellenistischen und römischen Kunst, Frankfurt am Main, 1986, vol. 2, pp. 638ff., cat. nos. 77-83). For a related
related example in the Museo dei Conservatori in Rome, inv. no. 936, see H. Stuart Jones, The Sculptures of the
Palazzo dei Conservatori, Oxford, 1926, p. 88, no. 25, pl. 32 (http://arachne.uni-koeln.de/item/objekt/26194).
The two versions thought to be closest to the original Hellenistic prototype are in a private collection in Bergamo and
in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, inv. no. I 1426 (K. Lange, Der Schlafende Amor des Michelangelo, Leipzig,
1898, illus. p. 22 and fig. 2, respectively). Another example, once at Whitehall in London (see the late 17th Century
drawing in Lange, op. cit., p. 52, upper left corner) is thought to have to have been lost in a fire and might have
been the famous fake Sleeping Cupid created by Michelangelo in 1496 when he was 20 years old. Yet
another version once thought to be Michelangelo's creation, this one clearly not ancient, is in Turin (see Lange, op. cit
, p. 19, and C.M. Brown, "The Erstwhile Michelangelo Sleeping Cupid in the Turin Museo di Antichità," Journal of the
History of Collections, vol. 5/1, 1993, pp. 59-63).

CATALOGUE NOTE
This cameo is first recorded with certainty in 1831 in a published catalogue of plaster casts of ancient gems compiled
by Eduard Gerhard for the bulletin of the Istituto di corrispondenza archeologica in Rome, the predecessor of the
German Archaeological Institute. The artisan responsible for executing the cast was Tommaso Cades (1772-1840), a
Roman gem-engraver whom the Institute had hired to carry out a massive encyclopedic record of ancient gems known
to be in existence at the time (see E. Zwierlein-Diehl, Antike Gemmen und ihr Nachleben, Berlin and New York, 2007,
pp. 284-285). The complete set comprising thousands of casts is kept at the German Archaeological Institute in Rome
and fills 78 volumes, the 75th of which contains the present cameo as no. IV C 300 (Deutsches Archäologisches
Institut, Rome, neg. no. 5149). The Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Bonn owns a reduced edition of the
Cades collection of casts; we are grateful to Dr. Erika Zwierlein-Diehl for confirming that a cast numbered II,79 (i.e.
Gerhard’s number) in the University’s edition of the Cades collection reproduces the present cameo.
The 1831 published catalogue entry describes the cameo as depicting “Augusto e Livia” and specifies that it was then
in the hands of an otherwise unknown Italian art dealer named Carlo Trebi. A few years later, probably in 1834, in a
small undated catalogue published by Cades himself to supplement the 1831 version, the stone is said to be in the
possession of Ignazio Vescovali (1770-1850), one of the major art dealers of his time who specialized in ancient gems
and other antiquities (see T. Ceccarini and A. Uncini, “Antiquari a Roma nel primo Ottocento: Ignazio e Luigi
Vescovali,” Bollettino - Monumenti, musei e gallerie pontificie, vol. 10, 1990, pp. 115-185, Michaelis Stephen L.
Dyson, In Pursuit of Ancient Pasts: A History of Classical Archaeology in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries,
New Haven, 2006). His name is best remembered today as the one given to a Greek original statue of Athena lost to
posterity, but known from several Roman marble copies (W. Schürmann, “Der Typus Athena Vescovali und seine
Umbildungen,” Antike Plastik, vol. 27, 2000, pp. 37 ff., pls. 20-49).
Napoleon Bonaparte's testament, opened at his death in 1821, records a gold snuffbox decorated with an ancient
cameo of Augustus and Livia in "agate d'onyx," "le seul qui existe" (Marquis de Monchenu, La captivité de Saint-
Hélène, Paris, 1894, p. 321, no. 14; F. Masson, Napoléon chez lui: la journée de l'empereur aux Tuileries, Paris,
1906, p. 348, no. 8). He bequeathed this snuffbox, along with 32 others, to his son Lucien Bonaparte (1775-
1840), who spent the last years of his life in exile in Italy and is known for his activities as an amateur archaeologist
(M. Gregori, Luciano Bonaparte: le sue collezioni d'arte, le sue residenze a Roma, nel Lazio, in Italia, 1804-1840,
Rome, 1995).

Rome, sold at auction in Paris by Feuardent in 1898, and now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (inv. no. 98.754),

and p. 78, cat. no. VII 6 (Dresden). All seem to have been carved in the 1st century A.D.
The myth depicted on the cuirass refers to an episode in Homer's Iliad, when the great warrior Achilles loses his armor
to the Trojans, and his mother, the Nereid Thetis, convinces Hephaestus to forge a new set, which she delivers to him
with other Nereids. Whether the iconography of the cuirass has any symbolic meaning, such as a naval victory or
imperial domination over the seas, is far from certain (Stemmer, op. cit., p. 157).
The present statue was first recorded in 1832, three years after it was acquired by the Duke of Buckingham, as having
come from the Braschi family collection in Rome. According to Massimiliano Papini (op. cit., p. 15), the Braschi
collection of antiquities was entirely formed by the year 1799. On April 19th, 1816, immediately following Don Luigi
Braschi’s death, a detailed inventory was made of his collection at the family’s Palazzo located between the Corso
and the Piazza Navona in Rome. The statue in its present state is not included in this inventory. One possibility is that
it was then kept in one of the family’s other residences. A second possibility is that the ancient core of the statue had
not yet been restored, and that the ancient cuirassed torso alone is listed as the very last item in the inventory, a “
fragmento di una corazza antica, segnata col numero 127.”
If the latter is the case, the torso was restored as a complete statue between 1816 and 1829, when the Duke of
Buckingham brought it to England along with two Cippolino marble tazze or basins, which do appear in the 1816
Braschi inventory. All three items were displayed on the loggia at Stowe, along with other marble figures and groups,
an intricate mix of ancient and modern statuary (on the antiquities collection at Stowe, see Jonathan Scott, The
Pleasures of Antiquity, British Collectors of Greek and Rome, New Haven, 2003, pp. 259-260).
The contents of Stowe house were sold in 1848, and the present statue was purchased by William Wakeford Attree, a
lawyer who was likely a purchasing agent for the 2nd Earl of Lonsdale, in whose collection at Lowther Castle the
statue was next recorded. The Earl of Lonsdale was one of the richest men in England at the time, and among the last
collectors of ancient marble statuary in the fashion of the 18th century. His collection was housed in two galleries
which he had added to the castle in 1866 for this purpose. They both projected into the park at the back of the building
and are still standing (Jonathan Scott, op. cit, pp. 263-264).
One can hypothesize as to why a mid-1st Century A.D. cuirassed torso was restored as a statue of Lucius Verus. The
Antonine emperor is known as an efficient civil servant and a capable soldier, but his legacy is largely elevated by the
series of exceptional rulers with whom he is associated. Lucius served as co-emperor alongside Marcus Aurelius
between A.D. 161 and his untimely death in 169. Their rule was the last in a succession of so-called “adoptive
emperors” of the Antonine dynasty, rulers who were adopted by their predecessors. The prosperity of the Roman
Empire during this period is generally attributed to the careful selection of heirs to the throne. This occurred between
the infamous reigns of Nero and Commodus, who inherited power from their predecessors. Niccolò Machiavelli
termed this period of succession “Five Good Emperors” in his Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius.

statue was still at Lowther Castle. The photograph shows how some
of the restorations to the relief decoration, which were still extant
prior to 1947, are now missing due to prolonged exposure to the
