4th century BC
Broken all around the bottom. Group: Aphrodite and Eros. Aphrodite at left, draped and crowned, seated on a column or altar with voluted Ionic capital; her head and upper body full front, her legs turned in 3/4 view to her right. With her right hand she holds up drapery; her left arm is resting on the shoulders of the semi-nude winged Eros who stands beside her at her left, his right leg raised with the foot resting on top of the altar. His drapery passes behind his body, the ends hanging over his right thigh and his left arm. Indistinguishable object in his right hand. Fairly sharp detail; from a good mould: large earrings separately added on Aphrodite. No color preserved.
Purchased from Mrs. William H. Allen (Robert Hecht), 1954
