Seated Athena from the Acropolis by Endoius, dedicated by Kallias
Her aegis bore a gorgoneum, totally effaced, and bronze snakes were
fitted at its edge.
The statue is so battered that we might well believe that it survived
the Persians and was seen by Pausanias (thought it is possible that its
state is due to re-use as building material in late antiquity).
About 530-520 BCE, Height 1.47 m
Acropolis, Museum 625
