The hair is drawn back from the forehead in slight waves and is formed into a small knot at the back. It is contained by a rolled fillet, best seen above the neck at the right side.
The surfaces are chipped, battered, and worn, but what remains exhibits the nobility of Greek sculpture in its greatest century.
