Limestone statue of a male votary


Not on view

The figure carries an aryballos (a small oil bottle) in his left hand and wears a sword sheath at his right side. The textured sash worn over his left shoulder is unusual. The headband decorated with rosettes and his well-arranged clothing, complete with a belt tied in a Herakles knot, imply that he is represented as a participant in a procession or festival - a fitting pose for a votive statue.
