This paper describes an ongoing project to digitally record, reconstruct and repaint a 2000-year-old painted Roman statue from Herculaneum, Italy. The paper considers the archaeological potential for extremely detailed laser scanning and digital recreation of Roman statuary, and visualisation within a physically accurate context. It focuses on the archaeological significance of the emerging technologies employed and their potential to illuminate our understanding of concepts such as Roman aesthetics, the impact of spatial context on perception of statues, and the interpretation of surviving unpainted Roman statues from elsewhere in the Roman world.
