|Italy, circa 4th to 3rd century BC|
Fine and rare cast handle of a draped Goddess for a ceremonial vessel, she stands on integral base; she wears flowing pinned peplos garment decorated with lovely folds in relief. She holds object out front in one hand, the other raised and bent at the elbow. She has fine facial features and carefully arranged hair. On the back of the attachment flange is a schematic head, perhaps a representation of Silenus or a Gogoneion between the two side extensions end in rosettes.
