- Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus must have been a handsome looking Prince and a commanding king for whom soldiers loved to fight. You can find his bust in the Capitoline Museum in Rome. There is also an equestrian statue on the Capitoline Hill. Both these statues define the Roman features with the typical curly hair and beard and highlight his perfect masculine beauty. But the philosophical expression on his face is hard to miss. Known as 'the wise', Marcus Aurelius was the Roman Emperor from AD 161 to AD 180. His life was full of turbulent events, with wars in Asia, that threatened the Roman Empire.
