This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: painted red, is arranged in three locks on each shoulder, cut in flattish double zigzags, and in a square mass of fourteen similar locks behind. The shoulders are broad and the figure in general sturdy without elegance. The massive neck and shoulders resemble those of No. 625, the seated Athena. Lechat, Au Mm., pp. 157 and 167; Schrader, Arch. Marm., p. 42, fig. 36. 603. Female Figure. Island marble. H. 39 m. Missing--head, legs from midthighs, left arm, right arm from just in front of elbow. Wears Ionic chiton and himation. The white ground of the chiton pattern on the left shoulder and on the irapvfyr is visible, but the colour has vanished. The ydvoHTK or, perhaps, weathering, leaves the ordinary surface of the marble darker. Lermann, pl. ii. below, on right, gives the colour scheme for irapvfr/ and girdle: --girdle--two blue stripes with simple red maeander; irapvpr)--red with two blue vertical stripes and green squares. The hair falls behind in a semicircular mass of nine locks cut in double zigzags, and in three similar ringlets on each shoulder. It is coloured red. No insertions; good work of normal Attic-Ionic stvle. Lechat, B.C.H.r 1889, p. 147, No. 4. 604. Female Figure. Found W. of Parthenon in 1882. Island marble. H.-41 m. Missing--head (and neck), both arms, and legs from knees. The head and right arm were inserted and fastened with cement. Clad in ordinary Ionic chiton and himation, with legs and arms as usual. The hair falls in a square mass behind divided into horizontal waves, and in three ringlets cut in double zigzags on each shoulder. No trace of colour. Early, formal work. Even here the angle above the irapvpr/ is cut with a drill. That stage is not yet reached in No. 601, but Nos. 600 and 603 are drilled. MyJonas, 'Apx-, more
