Roman Emperor

Trier was once part of the ancient Roman empire, and you can find evidence of that all around the city. This bust, however, is currently "on display" at a very unlikely location: The entry of the Forum, a popular discotheque in Trier! I used to be good at recognizing Roman Emperors (all I did in my Latin courses at school was look at the pictures in the book...) but I'm not sure who this is. Augustus (who founded Trier) would be an obvious choice, but I don't quite see it. Any experts around?
