Object Description: 

A spectacular terracotta figurine found in the later phase of Room 2 of Building 10, a Hellenistic mansion dating to the 3rd-2nd centuries BC, consisting of the head of a standing female with an unusual headdress. The head belonged to a female deity, as is suggested by its large headdress, comparable to the headdresses of other figurines depicting female deities dating to the Hellenistic period. Room 2 may originally have been an andron, the role of which was modified in the 2nd c. BC (use uncertain).
