A small, elegant marble sculpture of a hand with four folded fingers, the thumb hidden under the index finger and seemingly grabbing onto something (the folds of a toga?). This hand was once part of a large statue and broken off in antiquity, which can be seen by the patina on all surfaces.
Ancient Roman. 1st-2nd century A.D.
