Toga is a costume authentic to Roman citizens. The origin of the costume still preserves its' vagueness in both ancient and also in today's modern resources. As a result of the attributions to the ancient resources made by researchers, hypotheses centre upon the Etruscans. Today's researchers have initiated the development of the costume at the first quarter of the 1st century BC in light of the existing substantial sculpture work. 4 different types in costume can be seen from the 1st century BC until the end of the 4th century AC. The Toga dressed statues confiscated at Italian centred cities of Rome have been presented to the world of science with the work of H. R. Goette headed “Studien zu römischen Togadarstellungen”. Havé-Nikolaus Felicitas, on the other hand, has evaluated the toga dressed statues of Rome located in provinces over Greece with his work headed “Untersuchungen zu den kaiserzeitlichen Togastatuen griechischer Provenienz”. An oriented study of the development of the toga dressed statues have not yet been made in our day in Anatolia. With this study presented here, in light of the examples from Anatolia with the examples confiscated from the Italian centred cities of Rome and provinces over Greece; the periodical paralellism of the process of the typological and chronological development of the toga dressed statues from the 1st century BC until the 5th century AC have been put forth. Thus, another obscurity regarding Roman sculpture in Anatolia has been brought to light.
