The Goddess Athena in loubro ( Zenit-e film 35mm 1991)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

The Athena Mattei is exceptional in that it is a Roman replica of a Greek statue that has also survived. The figure is a copy of the Piraeus Athena, a fourth-century BC bronze statue, created by Cephisodotus or Euphranor, discovered in 1959. The erstwhile goddess of war - seen here in a more benevolent attitude - wears a helmet and, across her chest, the aegis (the skin of the goat of Amaltheia), bordered with snakes and adorned with the head of the gorgon Medusa.
