Sketch of the day: Shortly emperor
Here’s a quick, miniature (about 1.5x2in.) sketch of Otho, who was one of the brief hopefuls during the Year of the Four Emperors. All I know about the details of his appearance (beyond the statues, I mean) is that he was short, said to be vain, and was overly concerned about depilatories. Poor Otho. He lasted exactly three months. Left behind some nice-looking statues, though.
