Title:   A Portrait of an Imperial Priest
Author:   John McK. Camp II
Abstract:   A Roman portrait head was found on the north slopes of the Acropolis. The crown on his head indicate that the man was a priest of the imperial cult. Imperial worship in Athens is attested as early as the beginning of the empire, and small altars, statue bases and epigraphical evidence suggest such an active cult, but there has been little sculptural evidence until the discovery of this head. Its find-spot however does not give any suggestions to where in the city the center of this cult was located.
