Found during an excavation of a Roman bath-house on the Antonine Wall at Bearsden north of Glasgow in 1973, this head is presumably derived from a bust or statue of about half life-size. The carving incorporates many Celtic elements, such as the down-turned lips and the lentoid eyes, and was doubtless made by a local craftsman. The head has sometimes been identified as Fortuna, Good Fortune, often venerated in military bath-houses by soldiers of the Roman army. (L. Keppie)
