English: One of the two twin bronze busts of Claudius Gothicus (268/269 BCE) that were part of a cache of gilded bronze portraits, five of Roman emperors and one of an empress, hidden beneath the Capitoline temple in Brescia together with other bronze objects in preparation for a possible sacking of the town in the 4th or 5th century. They were unearthed only in 1826, and are now exhibited in the archaeological Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia, Italy.
Italiano: Il primo dei due ritratti gemelli in bronzo dorato di Claudio II "il Gotico" (268/269 d.C.). I busti in bronzo dorato, cinque di imperatori e uno di imperatrice, furono nascosti sotto il tempio capitolino a Brescia, assieme ad altri oggetti in metallo pregiato, in previsione del rischio d'un saccheggio della città nel IV/V secolo, e lì dimenticati fino al 1826. Sono esposti al Museo di Santa Giulia a Brescia.
