Limestone statue of a young man


Not on view

The head and body are from two different statues. The regular features and serene expression of the face as well as the carefully modeled drapery that makes clear the figure's stance show the influence of high Classical Greek style. The man holds a bough in one hand and a round pyxis, probably containing incense, in the other. Like most votive statues dedicated to a god, he wears a wreath.
