Roman Senator - bronze statue

I purchased this bronze statue of a Roman Senator some time ago. At one point I thought it was a replica of that of Aulus Metellus (The Orator) but the hand is in a different position plus my statue has a Pompeian type sword attached. Can not tell if it is a replica of something known, but being produced in the nineteenth century, is an exciting part of my collection.
