This is truly a beautiful display item and it will no doubt become the centrepiece of your collection. The attention to detail here is remarkable and this bronze is sure to receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed.

oman Emperor Clothing - The Color Purple and the 'Trabea' Toga
The most associated color with Roman Emperor Clothing is the color purple. Only a Roman Emperor was allowed to wear the 'trabea' which was a toga entirely colored in purple and worn on ceremonial occasions. Statues of gods were also dressed in the purple trabea toga, emphasising the importance of the color and of course associating the Emperor with the Roman gods. The purple toga was also referred to as the Toga purpurea. Lesser mortals such as kings, senators, young sons of senators, augurs and some other important priests were allowed to have purple stripes on their togas. The width of the stripe varied accordance to their status.
Roman Emperor Clothing - Tyrian Purple Dye
Tyrian Purple Dye was an extremely expensive dye which originated in Tyre in Lebanon. The Phoenicians owned the monopoly on this purple dye which was was made by crushing thousands of sea shells called the Mediterranean Murex. It took ten thousand Murex mollusks to make dye just one toga worn as an time of Roman Emperor clothing. Tyrian purple dye was worth more than its weight in gold and therefore came to symbolise both the wealth and power and the Roman Emperors.
