Lucretius' Appearance - Research into What He Looked Like

  • For the time being I'll start this thread with this. I know we can find information about the Lucretius ring in the introduction to one of Munro's editions to his Lucretius. And I clipped that photo of the ring somewhere, so that exists on the internet too, but I don't know where the original is located. The sketches in the second picture are, on the left, from the sketchbook of Herculaneum discoveries (need link) and the one on the right is from the Munro book.

    Changed the title of the thread from “Lucretius's Appearance - Research into What He Looked Like” to “Lucretius' Appearance - Research into What He Looked Like”.
  • I hate it when I can't find something. I just posted a copy of the above into a facebook thread, and I'd like to be able to post a link to where the photo of the original can be seen. If anyone comes across that please add it to this thread. I know I have seen an entry in a book or a museum page where I originally got this (the image on the left)
