Fine grained white marble (Pentelic?).

Head, broken off at base of neck; Chipped or broken: nose, chin, brows, hair; surface worn.

Head of a young female with a wide face, square jaw and plump cheeks. Her hair is parted in the center, drawn back over the ears, and pulled to the back where its ends are braided together. This thick braid then encircles the head; its plaits are indicated by short incised lines. A wide indentation between the braid and the roughly finished crown probably held a fillet or wreath of another material.
