Oval gem with bust of a youth | Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Intaglio. Portrait bust of Marciana, the elder sister of Trajan, in profile to the left. She has a lofty three-tiered coiffure. At the back of the head, the remaining hair has been twisted into a large nest of braids. This entire mass is backed by a diadem. She wears no jewelry, has a straight nose, and fleshy chin and cheek. She wears a cloak (stola). The identification as Marciana is based upon her unique three-tiered, scalloped hairstyle
