Priest or Sacrificing Man


Description Provenance Credit
Description This flat, schematic statuette depicts a man making an offering. He wears a mantle over his left shoulder, covering his lower body, and on his head is a stylized foliate wreath. His now-missing proper right hand would have held a phiale, a shallow dish for pouring a libation, while the small object in his left hand is likely an incense container.
Provenance Don Marcello Massarenti Collection, Rome (?); Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1902 (?), by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters with the Massarenti Collection, 1902 (?)
