Deutsch: So genannte »Marius«, freie Kopie (wohl augusteischer Zeit) von Bildnissen bedeutender Römer des 2. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. Wegen der zahlreichen Übereinstimmungen mit dem so genannte »Sulla« (maße, jähe Kopfwendung, geöffneter Mund, große Augen), sind diese zwei Statuen wohl als Paar (Bruder, Gegenspieler?) konziptiert und zusammen — etwa einer Porträtgalerie — aufgestellt gewesen.
English: So-called “Marius”, free copy (probably augustean time) after a portrait of an important Roman from 2nd century BC. Because of many common details with the so-called « Sulla » (proportions, open mouth, large eyes), it is advanced that both statues (brothers, adversaries?) were concieved and exhibited together.
Français : Pseudo-« Marius », 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-« Sylla » (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.
