HoB (found ca. 0.30 m. underground with Cat. 67 Fig. 182).

The heavily draped woman stands with weight on her l. leg, r. knee forward, r. foot drawn back. The l. hip is thrown out sideways, the shoulders back. Her chiton has five buttons on the r. sleeve. A himation is flung over her l. shoulder, where the edge hangs like a cape; the other end is held under her l. elbow. The heavy cloth, with strong diagonal folds, does not reveal the chiton underneath, but the shape of the breasts is clearly defined. At bottom, the chiton falls in an arch over r. foot, but in deeply carved vertical folds over l. foot. The back, done in simple large folds with flat chisel, is much more simplified than the front.

The head was worked separately and inserted. L. arm was dowelled at elbow by two dowels and was carefully worked to insert into the upper arm. R. arm was set in and held by three dowels above the elbow. There is no dowel hole for fastening the r. foot.

All traces of chisel are carefully removed. Well-smoothed work of the early Empire, probably after the earthquake of A.D. 17.



Head, lower arms, r. foot, and back r. corner of base missing.

H. with base 1.74, without base 1.61; Th. 0.335.
For parallels, cf. Paribeni, Cirene, 46, no. 75, pl. 61; Rizzo, Prassitele, 102, pl. 154a; also his pl. 131 (l. hand Muse on Mantinea base) and pl. 134a. Original date for this type was 4th C. B.C. (Rizzo, Prassitele, 90). For Hellenistic intermediary, Horn, Gewandstatuen, 24-26, pl. 8:1-2. Lower portion similar also to Artemisia of Halikarnassos (cf. Bieber, Sculpture Hellenistic Age, fig. 249), a favorite model in the early Empire. Cf. Hekler, Romische Gewandstatuen 132, 227, 235 fig. 3, 246 fig. 25. Also F. Poulsen, Country Houses, 53, no. 28.
