Relics of the Nile is pleased to present this ancient Greek terracotta figure of a Boeotian maiden (possible Aphrodite) from the Classical Period. She stands on a rectangular plinth with her left hand on her stomach and her right hand resting on what is possibly the edge of a piece of furniture or the top of a large jug. She wears a garment that ancient Greek women at the height of the Classical period wore with a nicely styled beaded necklace and flowing hair. The facial features are very nice and the piece remains completely intact with the exception of a repair to the neck that does not detract. The figure stands an outstanding 9.5" in height and forms an excellent display. Classical Period. ca. late 5th Century B.C.
