This larger than life 1st Century BCE granite head was found in the submerged sections of ancient Alexandria, Egypt. It is believed to have been a part of a statue depicting Ptolemy XV, commonly known as "Caesarion" (Greek for "Little Caesar"). Caesarion is most well known for being the illegitimate son of Ptolemaic queen Cleopatra VII and the Roman dictator Julius Caesar.

The head was on display at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, USA.
