Description Not Roman. Long thin figure, fully draped. Most of right arm missing, but right hand would probably have held a patera. Left hand outstretched, emerges from drapery. Cap hair. Little attention to detail on the back of the figure. Found in curator's office with no provenance but possibly from St Albans.
