Torso of a Marble statue

AD 1-99

Roman Period

Torso of a marble statue of a naked woman, probably the goddess Aphrodite or Venus. The figure appears to have stood with the weight on the right leg. The sculpture was influenced by the so-called Knidia type of Aphrodite, the work of the sculptor Praxiteles, but its exact type is uncertain. The sculpture was damaged in a fire in the late eighteenth century and the marble shattered. The pieces were restored before the sculpture was acquired for the British Museum.
