Ex Museo Nazionale di Villa Giulia, Rome de-acquisition, c. 1950's; ex Ran Ryan, Rome 1974; from the collection of Alex G. Malloy. Museo Nazionale di Villa Giulia was founded in 1889 in the Villa Giulia, or Villa di Papa Giulio (Pope Julius), built in Rome in the mid-16th century for Pope Julius III. Today the museum is principally devoted to antiquities of the pre-Roman period, from ancient Umbria, Latium, and southern Etruria. In the 1950's the museum sold some of its later Roman antiquities to Rex Ryan, an antiquities dealer who had a shop in Rome. Alex Malloy, a retired dealer in antiquities for 40 years, purchased a group of these antiquities, including this piece, from Rex Ryan, in 1974.
