Statuette of an Eros, nude but for a chlamys over his left shoulder and thick-soled sandals, holding an oenochoe in his upraised right hand and a shell serving as a bowl in his left hand, his oval face with fine features, his wavy hair bound in a kekryphalos, with a thick wreath of ivy leaves and berries, perforation at the shoulders for separately-made wings, extensive polychrome details: red on the sandals, crown and lips, black on the eyes, blue on some ivy and traces of gilding on some ivy and berries. Recomposed from large fragments; wings missing.
