Description:   Statuette of Apollo Lykeios.
The head found largely complete; the body mended from over two hundred fragments. Small fragments from the torso missing; the front part of the left foot, the little finger of the left hand, and the first two fingers of the right.
Surfaces perfectly preserved.
Nude standing figure, the weight on the right leg, the left leg forward with the knee slightly bent. Tongues in the soles of the feet for insertion into a base.
The left arm is outstretched, the right arm raised with the forearm resting on the crown of the head, the palm of the hand down, the fingers relaxed.
The long curly hair is elaborately dressed, with a braid from the center of the forehead, and a large knot, with projecting curls, at the back. The head is bent slightly to the figure 's left.
Probably belonging with this figure, possibly the base for the column which may have stood beside it, is the small round base from the same well, BI 247.
