The Face of Cleopatra: ancient Roman depictions of Cleopatra VII of Egypt. Other figures include her son Caesarion and her husband Mark Antony. The mediums of art include paintings, sculpted busts, statues, and coins, all dated to the life of Cleopatra or within a hundred years of her death in August 30 BC. In each depiction she can be seen wearing the royal diadem, the typical symbol of Hellenistic Greek kingship going back to ancient Macedonia in northern Greece. She also wears the melon-style hairdo that was worn by her Ptolemaic ancestors Arsinoe II and Berenice II, and which became popular with Roman women during her visits to Rome in 46 and 44 BC (where she stayed at Julius Caesar's villa).Please subscribe to our Youtube channel for further updates.
