This larger-than-life statue is of  L. Antonius Claudius Dometeinos, a local magnate who was honored by the city of Aphrodisias.  It was found at the entrance to the Bouleuterion.  He wears a civic dress and a heavy priestly crown, decorated with busts of Aphrodite and Roman emperors.  (from the museum description)

Note the bound scrolls by his feet.
