The Tivoli Plato

The Tivoli Plato
The Berkeley Plato

Stephen G. Miller

University of California Press

Given that the Tivoli square-omicron portrait herms comprise a series with one and only one example of each famous ancient, this conclusion that the Berkeley Plato does not belong to the Tivoli group actually became inevitable already in 1846. Attention to the Tivoli Plato has, naturally, focused on the inscription. As is immediately apparent, it is virtually a word-for-word, letter-for-letter, punctuation-for-punctuation duplicate of the Berkeley text, with only minor variations. Both the Tivoli Plato and the Berkeley Plato could have been copied from a common prototype, or the Tivoli copied from the Berkeley in antiquity.
