This standing woman’s left hand is raised and her right arm is missing, but she probably held forth a
vessel or object in sacrifice. She wears a chiton (tunic) with a decorated edge, a thick mantle draped over
her left shoulder, and a headband. She is barefoot and stands on a flat base that includes an attachment
element below.
