Comment on 18.6.1806

This is most likely a marble copy after an antique bust of Socrates in the Villa Albani in Rome. The making of the copy of the bust in Thorvaldsen’s workshop is documented in letter of 30.8.1805.
The whereabouts of the bust is unknown today, but read more about it in Busts of Socrates and Apollo 1805-06.
