Description: A Roman bronze appliqué head of a woman, possibly Diana or a maenad, with sharply defined physiognomy, hollow in the back. Delicately shaped facial features with incised eyes are framed by a detailed hairstyle. She has centrally parted wavy hair that is brushed backwards and piled high, secured in a knot at the crown, with ringlets falling at her cheeks. Berries emerge from the top left and right corners of her hair. This piece has an attractive green patina over the whole. Appliqués like this were attached to domestic items such as furniture pieces.
