Comment on Busts of Socrates and Apollo 1805-06

See Øjvind Andreasen & Karen Ascani (eds.), Georg Zoëga: Briefe und Dokumente, Gesellschaft für dänische Sprache und Litteratur, 2013, vol. III (1791-1797), no. 546. Zoëga in fact acquired a cast of the head in May 1792; cf. ibid., no. 560.
I am thankful to Jan Zahle for generously directing my attention to this reference to Apollo Giustiniani.
