150 a.C. - 125 a.C.. Marble. Room 072

This Greek statue of a Muse shows her wearing the high cothurni of the theatre on her feet, and she may have originally carried an instrument in her left arm. The dress she wears, a long chiton with a high belt and a cloak thrown backwards, is proper to Greek musicians. The seventeenth-century additions which it had were removed in the nineteenth century.
