Original – Copy – Forgery
Since the artistic production of artefacts, copies have also been made – for representative, dynastic, political or purely decorative purposes. The numerous imperial busts put up in the Roman provinces were important for the power preservation of the Roman Empire. While through copies of Greek busts and sculptures, which were well liked with the Roman patricians, antique Greek artworks that would otherwise be lost have outlasted till today.
