A BUST(sculpture) of Julius Caesar, believed to be the oldest representation of the Roman emperor, has been found at the bottom of the River Rhone near the town of Arles in the south of France, recently.

The life-sized bust showing the Roman ruler as a balding and ageing man with wrinkles and hollows in his face is tentatively dated to 46 BC.

Divers trained in archaeology uncovered the marble bust and a collection of other finds in the Rhone River
