A relief of Poseidon (Roman Neptune) the god of the sea, storms, and earthquakes.  Note his characteristic trident to the left of his face.

It was found at Sagalassos and dates to the first or second centuries A.D.

Compare the almost complete statue of Poseidon found at Smyrna (modern Izmir).

And this mosaic from Ephesus.
