Subject Description: This youthful male figure tilts his head to his left, and parted his lips slightly. His wavy hair is cursorily worked. Metal horns would have emerged from the hair above the forehead. These horns indicate that this figure would have represented Pan (with goat horns) or a river god (with bull horns). Pan is more likely, as the horns were placed very close to each other.
Condition: Head only (nearly complete)
Condition Description: The head is broken off near the base of the neck. The neck and other surfaces have sustained chips; the nose has nearly eroded, and the surfaces of the face are pock marked and covered in patches with dark gray adhesions.
Technique Description: Metal horns would have attached to the dowel holes above the forehead.
