Fragment of a wreath votive offering

Currently not on display


Fragment from a votive offering from the Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia in Sparta (or possibly another sanctuary site in Lakonia). The fragment is of a small round wreath with short separated rays, some of the side ones are longer than the others, the base of the vertical stem survives, and there is excess lead in the interior of the wreath. The lead has a drak green appearance.
