The Sabouroff Head has raised many doubts, in particular about the rest of the sculpture
The Sabouroff Head is a life-sized marble sculpture of a man’s head from ancient Greece. It has been dated to the 6th century BCE and was most probably sculpted in Athens. The nose and lips are damaged, but otherwise, it is a remarkably well-preserved artifact, about nine inches tall. In case you’re wondering, you’re right: Sabouroff is not a Greek name. The bust is named for Peter Alexandrovich Saburov, a 19th century Russian diplomat, amateur chess player and art collector.
