This figure stands wearing a pallium over a tunic (the Greek chiton). The drapery is naturalistically rendered and shows a high level of craftsmanship.

Carved with a running drill, the face of this woman would have originally been rendered in high relief and would have been extremely detailed. Although some of this detail has since eroded with time, the small parting of her lips and the demarcation of her eyes is still evident. Her hair is exquisitely delineated and is drawn back into a elaborate hairdo containing a chiton and a top-not, further belying her social status...
