Servius Sulpicius Galba Caesar Augustus, a prominent figure in Roman history, is captured through various artistic depictions. From ancient coins to marble sculptures and intricate designs on dishes, Galba's image has been preserved for generations to admire. The first hint of his existence comes from the Sestertius coin portraying Emperor Galba. Created by an unknown artist in 68 AD, this coin showcases his regal profile and serves as a tangible piece of history. Another coin, the Aureus, also portrays Emperor Galba during his short reign from July 68 to January 69 AD. The creator remains anonymous but their craftsmanship immortalizes Galba's likeness for eternity. Moving beyond coins, we find Plate 7: Servius Galba in profile to the right from The Twelve Caesars collection dating back to 1610-40. This artwork captures Galba's stoic expression and offers insight into his appearance during that era. A magnificent marble sculpture of Roman Emperor Galba further solidifies his presence in history. This portrait reveals intricate details carved with precision and skill, showcasing the power he held during his time as emperor. Designs for dishes featuring portraits of Roman Emperors Nero, Caligula, and our subject himself -Galba- provide a glimpse into how these rulers were celebrated even through culinary artistry. Plate 7: Emperor Galba on Horseback takes us back centuries ago when equestrian statues symbolized strength and authority. This depiction shows him mounted confidently atop a horse while ruling over Rome. An intriguing plate displays an equestrian statue of Galba with a beheading scene depicted alongside it. Such imagery hints at the tumultuous times during which he reigned before meeting an untimely end. Sergius Galba from Twelve Caesars on Horseback created between c1565-1587 by Abraham de Bruyn showcases another perspective of this emperor's equestrian prowess.
