By 1893, the Boncompagni Ludovisi family was in dire financial straits. They sold one of the world’s greatest art and antiquities collections. Much of it was purchased by the state and is in Roman museums today, but in 1897 Juno was bought by Charles and Mary Franklin Sprague of Boston. Juno was shipped to Boston then carted by a team of 12 oxen to the Sprague’s estate in Brookline. It was the centerpiece of their Italianate garden for the next 107 years until it was bought for the MFA.

Es el joven concubino de Adriano que aparece y desaparece por los museos de Roma, pero sobre todo mora en el Castel Sant' Angelo, antiguo mausoleo del emperador que tanto le quiso.
