Unusually, this figure places his hand on hip with thumb in front, fingers in back.
Cast in one piece with its hollow base (perhaps designed to crown a candelabrum), this small bronze portrays a young man wearing a semicircular cloak adorned with punched circles along its edges. This likely represents an embroidered tebenna, an Etruscan forerunner to the Roman toga praetexta. He appears to stride forward, his right leg trailing behind and right hand extended, perhaps once holding an object.
