Description: This figure has been badly broken at the bottom. It is a figure of a young male, apparently Apollo, seated in a chair with a cloak draped over one thigh. That leg is broken from the knee down; the other leg has lost a foot. He wears a high, elaborate headdress on top of his long hair. In his right hand he holds a round, flat object his left arm is around a lyre or some such square object. The facial features are delicately molded, as is the nude body. The back of the figure is merely a rounded mold form with a characteristic hole from the pouring.
