- This is a fragment of a cast of fig. A from the west pediment of the Parthenon, a reclining nude male figure who has frequently been identified as a river or stream of Athens, perhaps the Ilissos, the Kephisos, or the Eridanos. It preserves a small amount of drapery that rests on the ground below the figure's left arm.
