Description

leaning on a quadrangular support to her right with the weight on her left leg, and holding a fragmentary kithara atop the support, and wearing sandals, chiton, belted peplos with overfold, and himation fastened with a brooch on her left shoulder, falling over her back down to her feet, and cascading in zigzaging folds at her right side, her head turned slightly to her right, her deeply-drilled wavy hair parted in the center and bound in a chignon; no restorations.
