Description Provenance Credit
Description The youth with drapery around the hips and vine leaves in his hair is probably intended to represent Bacchus. The cross-hatched rear surface indicates that the plaque was glued to a wooden object. The top preserves its squared edge; all other sides are broken.
Provenance Dikran Kelekian, Constantinople and Paris [date of acquisition unknown], by purchase; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1912, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1912
