Description:
This statue, along with a pendant statue of Winter, was found in 1804 by Robert Fagan on the Cesarini estate at Campo Jemini, near Tor Vajanica, near an ancient Roman villa. Autumn is shown as a young woman with an ornate crown of grapes surrounded by four cupids harvesting the vines. The head was added by the Neoclassical sculptor Massimiliano Laboureur. The statue can be dated to the middle of the second century CE. The base is an unrelated work. (Source: Vatican Museums (Musei Vaticani) [website]; http://www.museivati cani.va/)
