The Barberini Tyche
The features of the goddess, a portrait, suggest she was a woman of high status. Her finer details include centrally parted wavy hair bound in a plait at the back and surmounted by a mural crown of three towers each with an arched opening; spiral locks of hair fall down her neck. Probably also a personification of a city, possibly Rome, the head sits on a 17th century bust of Egyptian alabaster and Italian Porta Santa marble with a plinth of Bianco e Nero marble.
