Category:   Misc. Moulds
Description:   Put together from many pieces; most of the legs, much of the hips, part of the back, and a fragment of the chin and mouth, remain, together with many non-joining fragments.
A standing male figure, about two-thirds life-size, its leg thrust forward. Over the (waxed) core, gritty clay was applied in three or four layers to a total thickness of 0.03m. to 0.045m. The outermost layer was fired red (from a preliminary baking); the innermost black, from the molten metal, particles of which cling to its surface.
For attachment to its base, a spike was let down from each heel. Note in the middle of the back a round hole, possibly for one of the pins that held the inner and outer polos in position.
S 797, B 1538, B 1541 (wrong number) are also parts of the same mould.
Cf. JdI 52 (1937), p. 37.
