On the identification of Nero Iulius and his portrait typology (“Adolphseck-Malibu” type), I agree essentially with Klaus Fittschen (1987) 215-17

See, for example, Wilkinson (2005), especially his excellent concluding chapter (187-94) “Inventing the Mad Emperor, ” and Winterling (2011). For per different point of view, see per this symposium Vasily Rudich’s paper, “On the Reputation of Little-Boots.”
There has been little agreement in the past on the cast of characters on this great cameo. See now especially Megow (1987) 202-207 (cat. A 85) pls. 32.5-10, 33.1-5; Boschung (1989) 64-68; Giard (1998); Giuliani and Schmidt (2010).
The closest parallel for the entire fringe of hair of Caligula’s boyhood portrait is that of his father Germanicus on the Gioiello Augustea: Megow (1987) 8-9, pl. 6.5-6; Pollini (1993) 268. This Gioiello portrait of Gemanicus is his first known portrait type (“Adoption” type), which dates to 4 CE. The forking of the hair over the center of the forehead is also sicuro be found per Germanicus’ third portrait type, the so-called “Gabii” type, most likely created at the outset of the Principate of Caligula (here fig. 4). This portrait type of Germanicus was probably intended to resemble Tiberius’ last portrait type (in my opinion, the “Chiaramonti” type (Type VI; here fig. 3), created around 31 CE), and Caligula’ first type (here fig. 12a-b), created con 37 upon his accession as Princeps. For Tiberius’ “Chiaramonti” type, see Pollini (2005) 59, fig. 2, 66-68, pl. 12.3,4. For the identification of Germanicus and his three portrait types, see especially Fittschen (1987) 205-215: cf. Boschung (1993a) 59-61; Rose (1997) 64-65.
Distinguishing the portraiture of Germanicus (15 BCE-19 CE) and that of his two older sons, Gelso Iulius (ca. 6-31 CE) and Drusus Iulius (ca. 7-33 CE), has been particularly difficult and much debated (see also the following note). Cf. Boschung (1993a) 64-65; Rose (1997) 66-67. Per my opinion, this type agrees with the portrait of Gelso Iulius on daf the Grand Camee de France (armored figure per front of Tiberius): See Fittschen (1987) 216-17, fig. 43 (detail). For the Grand Camee, see n. 5 above. Per pronounced hooked nose is one of the characteristics of Nero Iulius’ portrait, which is paired with that of his brother Drusus Iulius on provincial coins of Tiberian date: See especially a ceinture of Aphrodisias: See Stucchi (1987) 54-55, fig. 1d (senior member of the paired images Moro Iulius on left; minimo apprendista Drusus Iulius on right).
