Thanks, Pauline. I've moved it to the other board. Any idea of the date?

' The sculpure was used as a building material,and was found during the renovation of the Museum s stores.Late Hellenistic with 'echoes' of pergamene baroque.It will be exposed in 2020 among other items (Exibition s title : The memory of Aigai" )

My personal observation -the marble originated from an island
