Statue of Vejovis

A colossal statue of Vejovis (also spelled Vediovis or Veiovis), recovered in a 1939 CE excavation of the Temple of Vejovis in Rome. The head is missing, but long locks of curly hair drape the statue's chest, suggesting a youthful, Apollo-like image. The missing hands would have likely held Vejovis' cult objects, possibly a bundle of arrows. The statue is thought to date from the Flavian period (late 1st century CE), and is housed at the Capitoline Museum in Rome.
