Statue of Cornelia Antonia from Antioch of Pisidia

The woman, whose name was inscribed on the plinth as Cornelia Antonia, wears a long and voluminous chiton with a large himation, covering the entire body and falling down onto the plinth. Although the posture of the body and the positions of the limbs are classical, in the eyes, nose, and mouth, a successful attempt towards achieving an individual characterization may be observed. Marble. Roman Period, Antonine Dynasty, 2nd century CE. From Antioch of Pisidia (Antiocheia ad Psidium), YalvaƧ, in modern-day Turkey. (Museum of Archaeology, Istanbul, Turkey).
