This statuette depicts a young boy standing on a square base, slightly stooped and leaning on his left leg. He is wearing a himation folded over his left arm, leaving his bare chest uncovered. His forehead is encircled by a strophion from which the strands of wavy hair escape. He carries a purse in his right hand. These votive statuettes were polychrome. Our statuette is no exception to this rule, in fact it still shows traces of color. The back is pierced with a small vent
