Newton Hall Athena, or Walston Athena




Statue of Athena. She stands with her left hand on her hip; in her (lost) right hand she would have carried a spear. She wears a Corinthian helmet tipped back on her head, a chiton, and over it a himation that is bunched in thick folds beneath her breast, with an aegis poking out above the folds.
