Abstract :
The present article discusses a child’s portrait in bronze, which is preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Badajoz. I hope to be able to analyse it and demonstrate that: a) an Augustan chronology is the most probable option for the portrait; b) its braided hair indicates that it is the representation of a slave; c) this type of small-format busts could deal with objects safeguarded in the Roman lararium.
