Head from a votive sculpture

About this object

A very small round female head from a votive statuette. The female has almond shaped and bulgy eyes, her nose has wide nostrils. The lips are missing. The hair along the forehead appears to be braided. There is an earing on the left ear that survives. The left eye has a hacking mark that may have been from the excavation. The facial features have significantly eroded, the right side is broken as is most of the top back of the head.
