Statuette of a standing draped woman. She has her weight on her right leg and the left one placed to the side. Her left arm picks some folds of the himation close to the hip and the left is placed behind the back. She wears a chiton and an himation, which covers the whole body including the head. She is wearing pointed shoes. Note the unusually sunken facial features not common to the Myrina group; related to Tanagra types.The figure is placed on a thin rectangular plinth.
Missing: a large piece from right side of plinth in front; and a smaller from the left.
Some traces of white slip.
