Title:   Herm Statuette
ΤΙΤΛΟΣ:   Μικρογραφική χάλκινη Ερμαϊκή στήλη
Category:   Bronze
Description:   Intact save for chip from bottom of Herm, and another from the base.
A portrait herm, draped.
The hair is worn in a fringe of straight locks around the forehead, and bound by wreath (possibly a plain fillet), tied with two hanging ends behind.
On the front, below the drapery, a caduceus, incised.
The Herm stands on a small round moulded base, from which it has broken away; it apparently broken off also in antiquity, and was soldered on with some substance, much of which remains.
Style of hairdressing suggests the time of Nero : possibly an imperial portrait ?
Cf. B 882 for base.
