Byron. Exactly.

After climbing the Spanish Steps, we headed to nearby Borghese Gardens.  
(We had reservations to visit the Villa Borghese museum.)

On our way to the gallery, we encountered this statue of Lord Byron. 

Mr. Hunter felt perfectly at home nestling himself atop a little skull that sits beside the tempestuous poet.

A bit of Lord Byron trivia for you.  His daughter, Ada Lovelace, is considered by some to have been the world's first computer programmer.
