Facial Reconstructions of Roman Emperors from Statues and Portraits

Of Nero, the Roman historian Seutonius wrote:

In stature he was a little below the common height; his skin was foul and spotted; his hair inclined to yellow; his features were agreeable rather than handsome; his eyes grey and dull, his neck was thick, his belly prominent, his legs very slender, his constitution sound.

This add a bit of flavor to the work of digital artist Daniel Voshart, who used historical records with surviving portraiture to reconstruct images of Roman emperors from Augustus (d. 14) to Numerian (d. 284).
