Lucas you bring up a great many good points in your discussion, but I’m curious if those that viewed the statue of Commodus dressed as Hercules helped people see him in a greater light or if it became an item of ridicule. When first viewing the statue, I can’t say I was awe inspired about how powerful Commodus looks, but how it makes him look as if he is trying to be something he is not.
