Sculpture of a Modest Roman Matron 1st century BCE
"The size of this statue indicates that it was created to be a public monument, most likely representing a local benefactor. The pose, gesture, and pattern of the drapery are characteristic of Hellenistic portrait sculpture. The complexity of the garment's folds dates this figure to the 1st century BC." - Walters Art Museum
