A statue of a sleeping Maenad made from Pentelic marble. It was found near the Acropolis. Presumably adorned a luxury residence. The Maenad is asleep, lying on a panther skin, spread on a rocky surface. The type is known as the reclining Hermaphrodite. Time of the emperor Hadrian (117- 138 AD) - National Museum of Athens.
