White marble sculpture with a toga that used to decorate the Segóbriga theatre, where it was found in 1970.

It is thought that it originally belonged to the "scaenae frons" (elaborate back scene) decoration of the theatre; although it could have been part of previous constructions such as the old forum.

The sculpture may have been on either of the two floors of the façade-set of the stage. It was found with a base with inscription, probably belonging to the statue, which is used today as its base in the museum.
