9.B.4. Hellenistic Sculptures, Museum

More sculptures unearthed from the Nymphaeum (grottoes) of Herodes Atticus, a rich Greek aristocrat and served as a Roman senator. All made from Parian marble which was highly prized by ancient Greeks for making sculptures quarried from the island of Paros in the Aegean Sea.
