|Description||A lateral sima attachment in the form of a molded head. It was located on the right side of the sima, the left side of the head was attached directly to the sima front, while the right half extended beyond the edge of the adjacent sima. This is reflected on the back surface--the right side shows attachment scar, while the left portion is smooth and slightly concave. The head itself is partly preserved, broken above the level of the eyes. No ears are visible beneath the hair which flanks the face. Almond-shaped eyes are recessed, while the cheeks are in low relief. The chin juts out and the lips of the mouth protrude, being formed by two ridges of clay.|
|Fabric Description||Murlo terracotta. A coarse clay with bits of stone fired an orange brown.|
