Description A finely finished nude figure of Dionysos, the Greek god of wine, holds a cornucopia (horn of plenty) and a bunch of grapes. He stands between two spiral columns. The plaque was originally squared. It is broken at the left and top, and chipped along the right edge.
The plaque was cleaned for exhibition. Old structural cracks and breaks were checked for stability and reinforced from the reverse as needed.
