Roman figurines of Hercules (around 1 - 300 AD, bronze)

These figurines show Hercules's club and the lion skin that he wears over his head and shoulders and wrapped around his left arm. Hercules was especially popular because he had originally been human, but had become a god because of his great achievements. In the northwest provinces of the Roman Empire - Gaul, Britain and Germany - Hercules was often identified with local Celtic gods. These figurines are displayed at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery exposition.
