This portrait bust of Julius Caesar has been found at the bottom of the Rhone River at Arles, France. Archaeologists believe it was sculpted while he was still alive, perhaps two years before his assassination. Since it is clearly not an idealized portrait but a study from life, the bust shows what Caesar really looked like.
