Fragment of a cockerel

Currently not on display

Body of a cockerel from a votive offering from the Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia in Sparta (or possibly another sanctuary site in Lakonia). The figurine is missing only its head. Cross hatched lines are used to attribute the feather texture of its neck and deep long diagonal grooves are for the lower part of its body. The cockrell has a bushy tail and there is long line of excess lead at its back.
