The figure represents a man of this particular epoch (400-146 B.C.) wearing the kolobus ornamented with bands of embroidery.
It is girded at the waist, and a himation of small dimensions is draped over the left shoulder, ready for the other end to be thrown over it.
He wears the pilos and his hair has been allowed to grow longer than heretofore, in accordance with the new fashion of this age.
If this young man had desired to be in the height of fashion, he
would have had long close-fitting sleeves added to his kolobus.
