|Small slightly elongated figure. Some attempt at details of the musculature of the legs but it is not very well carried out. Stands with weight on right leg, left leg slightly bent, right hand at waist, looks down at to the left. Published as Cupid but the baldric and quiver suggest Apollo. Possibly holding a small round object in the left hand. No details on feet which are joined, the right hand is truncated but short grooves depict the fingers. Nipples are small round dimples on the chest, as is the belly button. Curly hair, crude facial features. Central groove down the front from chest to belly button. Stands on a small, square pedestal base. Henig wonders about date of figure from photo.
