The figure is identifiable as a goddess by the scepter in her left hand. Traces of an A from an inscription suggest that she is Hera. She holds a phiale, which indicates a context involving a libation. The goddess is richly dressed in a combination of garments that ripple over her body in heavier and finer folds. The floral ornament on the shoulder is disposed so as to complement the treatment of the figure.
