The Capitoline Venus is a type of statue of Venus, specifically one of several Venus Pudica (modest Venus) types, of which several examples exist. The type ultimately derives from the Aphrodite of Cnidus. The so-called “Capitoline Venus” is an Antonine copy of a late Hellenistic sculpture that ultimately derives from Praxiteles (4th century BCE). (Capitoline Museums, Rome)
