This work contains publication of the unnaturally large portrait of

Socrates from the collection of the artist Sir Frank Brangwyn 1867

-1956, which is purportedly originally from Split now held in the

Archaeological Museum in Split. It is made of limestone, and it once

belonged to an entire statue. It is most akin to the type B Socrates the

original is from approximately 320 BC, but it had undergone some

modifications in relation to the archetype, particularly in the formation

of the hair. The Roman copy is from the time of the Tetrarchy and it may

have been a component of the décor of Diocletian’s Palace.
