"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Female face and neck in pentelic marble, presumably a fragment from a statue. Face of late Hellenistic type leaning to right. Full features, mouth slightly open. Remains of red and black paint in eyes. Hair indicated above forehead has slight traces of red paint. Possibly made as a separate piece, may have represented Venus, or Berenike II.
Good condition; good, if dull, workmanship.
