Description Provenance Credit
Description This flat, schematic statuette depicts a woman making an offering. She would have held a phiale, a shallow dish for pouring libations, or a round bread in her now-missing proper right hand, and another object in her left. In common with similar figures, a peaked head covering, such as a headdress, crown, or possibly the edge of her mantle, is shown around her head.
Provenance Don Marcello Massarenti Collection, Rome, no. 14 (?); Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1902, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters with the Massarenti Collection, 1902 (?)
