The original statue, of the last century BC to first century AD, also known as Livia or Faustina, was in the Mattei collection in Rome since the end of the sixteenth century and recorded in 1704. It was sold to Pope Clement XIV in 1770 and is now in the Vatican museum. Horace Walpole had a copy made by Filippo della Valle in 1740–1741 in memory of his mother, Catherine, which was erected in Westminster Abbey.
