Fragment of a Marble Grave Stele with the Head of a Youth in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, February 2008
Fragment of a Marble Grave Stele with the Head of a Youth
Greek, first quarter of the 5th century BC.
Said to be from Megara

Accession # 12.59

The very short hair, well-defined jaw, and unsmiling mouth identify this as a work of the early 5th century BC. The eye was originally inset.

Text from the Metropolitan Museum of Art label.
