About this object

A round head from possibly a young female votive statue. The head has big eyes and well defined corners of the eye lids. The lips are thin without a smile. The top back of the head is slightly conical which may suggest that the hair was tied or wrapped up at the top back or wearing th sakkos. Only the left ear survives and a small earing can be seen.
