The god, beardless, is represented as if walking.
He wears a short light tunic (chiton), a fawnskin and boots.
On the head is an ivy wreath and buches of grapes hand wither side of the
face. He would hold a wand wreathed in ivy- and vine-leaves with a pine cone
at the top (thyrsus) in the right hand and a drinking cup (kantharos) in the
left. The left arm was repaired in antiquity.
About mid-2nd c. B.C.
