|Title||Gavin Inglis Hamilton, Rome [to Charles Townley]|
|Date||23 May 1794|
|Extent & Medium||1 piece|
|Content Description||Hamilton describes his statue of Antinous. It was in two pieces, making a restoration necessary. He had offered it to Mr Jenkins for £1,000, but he had declined it; so Hamilton was obliged to offer it to the Pope, who had accepted. However, Hamilton shared Townsley's opinion that it was more interesting as two different fragments. Hamilton is sending two medals, a small bronze figure which seems to be of a boxer, and other artifacts to Townley via an intermediary.|
