About this object

Body of a small male votive statue. The head, legs and the hands are missing. The male is wearing a long chiton with sleeves covering both of his shoulders. There is a deep fold on his waist which may indicate that he was also wearing a himation on one of his shoulders. The right thigh appears to be advancing to the front and the right arm is to his side. The left arm is bent and closer to the waist. Most of the statuette's details have faded.
