Bronze hand of a boxer. Imperial. 1st–2nd century A.D. Roman. The hand is clad in a caestus (boxing glove), comprising a semicylindrical strip and a projecting spike, tied with cords running from the wrist. Although Roman boxers are represented on statues, mosaics, terracotta plaques and lamps, and bronze figurines, few objects show the actual boxing glove with such clarity of detail as the present piece. The hand is probably a votive, dedicated by a boxer on his retirement.
