Title:   Draped Seated Figure Fragment
Category:   Sculpture
Description:   Badly damaged draped figure seated on a throne (Kybele? Philosopher ?). The throne is broken at top, left side and front of bottom. The head, shoulders, arms (except left forearm) and legs from the knees down are also missing.
The figure is wrapped in a heavy cloak one end of which is thrown across its legs in heavy folds. The left hand rested in the lap, the right seems to have been raised (possibly holding a staff). The throne has a high curved back and no arms. Its sides, which are solid to the ground, end in the foreparts of winged lions. Cf. S 930.
Pentelic marble.
Possibly a male figure: cf. Richter (1929), Sculpture and Sculptors of the Greeks, fig. 333 (fig. 350 in forth edition 1970), portrait statue in the British Museum, and fig. 445 (fig. 356 in forth edition 1970), statue signed by Zeuxis in the Metropolitan Museum.
