Marble bust. Roman. c. 1st-2nd Century AD.
Marble bust of a sleeping child wearing crepundia (amulets and charms) on a cord across his chest. This portrait may have been set on the child’s tomb.
crepundia is a generic term for children’s playthings, such as rattles, dolls etc. The name is also given to objects of a similar description (small rattles and shaped charms) that were tied around the neck of a child as a form of protection, as well as the purpose of identification in cases of lost or stolen children.
