Description Nude male, standing with wineskin slung over left shoulder and staff supported in right hand leans against right shoulder. Details of right side of face especially worn. Fingers nicely depicted on left hand and some attempt on the right. Nice piece, well executed. At the bottom there is a ridge on the front of the thighs - was he standing behind something? Or terminal of some sort?
