Limestone funerary monument of a woman

Roman, Cypriot

Not on view

The deceased woman is accompanied by a servant girl who holds a jewelry chest in her right hand; a round object that resembles a mirror hangs from her left arm. The tight curls that frame the woman's face were made fashionable in the court of the Flavian emperors at Rome toward the end of the first century A.D. The face of the plinth on which the servant stands is inscribed: "Zoilos of Golgoi made [it]."
