Bronze relief of a veiled woman riding a sea-goat


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 156

Despite her elaborate drapery and stately pose, this female riding a sea-goat is probably a nereid, a nymph of the calm sea. The fish-tailed sea-goat on which she is seated is of a type that is extremely rare before the Hellenistic era.
