First off, if you can, try to be at the tabularium for sunset...the view is magical, especially during the low season when there aren't many visitors.

Its style has been dated to the III century but it's balanced nature and seriousness of the face are reminiscent of Hellenism that is more typical of the V century. This hodgepodge of features makes an interesting statue for art lovers but dating very difficult. It's been famous throughout the history of art, there are many copies of both antiquity and Renaissance and it's an essential work of the Capitoline Museums.
