But rather than conclude that these ­ ­features are the result of poor art, as has been argued in the past, it is probably a deliberate attempt to exploit the traditional imagery of the victorious ruler/athlete with an image that conveys the massive power of the emperor over his pretensions of Classical cultural ­connections. The issue of judging art and its values and class connections is an important topic and one that art historians debate, as did the Romans.
