Rome - Julio Claudian by Tadarida Rome - Julio Claudian by Tadarida
Wealthy Roman couple from the time of Julio Claudian dynasty.

He's clean shaved and wears his hair short. Apart from some controversial philosophers and Greeks, all proper Romans
visited the barber daily. Actually, since Alexander the Great, they had hair only on their heads.

Woman's wearing stolla in tyrian purple, it was the most expensive pigment back then. On her head she has a flower chain. The were very popular in ancient Rome and had many functions (bringing luck, allowing the wearer to drink more alcohol etc.)
