Not On View
The end of the nose is damaged, and the other surfaces are relatively corroded or pitted, not unpleasingly so. The hair is drawn into a knot at the back and is bound with a fillet, which has been wound twice around it. This head must come from a very small statuette, perhaps representing Aphrodite. There is a certain visual kinship with the Bartlett Aphrodite of the fourth century B.C.
By 1912: with E. P. Warren; gift of E. P. Warren to MFA, 1913
