Description Two small horns grow from the satyr's forehead, his ears are pointed like a goat's, and he wears a garland over his short, unruly locks. The head was once part of a larger work, perhaps a herm (a bust mounted on a square post). Statues and herms of satyrs were commonly found as decorations in the gardens of Roman villas. The eyes and lips were originally inlaid.
