Construction workers in Isernia, a city in south-central Italy discovered the marble head from a statue of Caesar Augustus, who reigned from 27 BC – AD 14.  The discovery came during renovations to the town’s walls, some of which were originally constructed during the Imperial Roman era.  Despite the fact that only the head was discovered, and it is missing its nose, scholars were able to identify it as Caesar Augustus based on his signature hairstyle and features.  The find will eventually be put on display at the nearby Museum of Santa Maria Delle Monache.  Caesar Augustus was the Roman emperor who was reigning at the time of Christ (Luke 2:1-7).  You can learn more about him in Episode 117 of Digging for Truth (link below).
