"Depicts an old woman garbed as a priestess and engaged in an act of sacrifice. Her right hand (missing) scatters grains of incense taken from a box held in her left hand (also missing) upon a small cylindrical altar, or incense burner, part of which is seen at her right. The statue was found in a ruined, vaulted tomb at Pozzuoli, Italy in 1902."
