Early 3rd century BC
Standing clothed female figure of possibly Corinthian manufacture, wearing a himation over a floor-length chiton. The himation was a rectangle of wool or linen, often drawn away from one shoulder. The figure´s earrings are well preserved. Traces of white slip cover most of the figure, and rusty red survives in the hair.
