This is a Roman sculpture from the mid-empire CE) of the head of a Cyclops. He has two depressions for regular eyes, even though he has his real eye in the middle of his forehead.

Polyphemus, by Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein, 1802   “Inside there lodged a monster of a man, who now was herding the flocks at a distance away, alone, for he did not range with the others, bust stayed away by himself; his mind was lawless, and in truth he was a monstrous wonder made to behold, not like a man, an eater of bread, but more like a wooded peak of high mountains seen standing away from the other.” (Book IX, pg 142)

Polyphemus: gigantic one-eyed son of Poseidon and Thoosa in Greek mythology, one of the Cyclopes. His name means "much spoken of" or "famous". Telemus warned the Cyclops Polyphemus that the giant would lose his sight to a man named Odysseus.
