Statue of a sleeping Maenad. Found in Athens, to the south of the Acropolis. Large parts of the rock, legs and face have been restored with plaster. The left arm is missing. The statue presumably adorned a luxury residence. The Maenad is asleep, lying on a panther skin spread on a rocky surface. The statue type is known as the reclining Hermaphrodite. The work expresses the Classicising trend of an Attic workshop. Time of the emperor Hadrian (AD 117-138). Length: 1.36 m.
