Statuette of Hermaphrodite holding Eros

Inv. Scu 370

Hermaphrodite, standing on the right leg with the left slightly bent, is completely naked except for the cloak that falls from the shoulders down below the knees; in the folds of the cloak the figure holds Eros with both hands.

The statuette is a Roman replica of an Hellenistic prototype .

Perhaps found at Tor Marancia, the statuette was in the Chablais collection before being acquired for the Capitoline Museum.
