dc.description Early Roman, c. 300 – 100 or Hellenistic Period, 323 – 31 B.C.E.
dc.description Base of neck indicates a vessel. Left side of face and lower right side are intact. Right eye and most of right side of head are missing. Woman appears to be wearing a headdress over her stylized hair. Right side seems to have been dented and crushed. Most likely purposefully damaged and kept in a common scrap pile, either for the monetary value of the metal or for personal, unknown reasons. Its original purpose was ornamental, possibly as a cap for a staff or decorative bottle cork.
