Girl playing astragaloi (knucklebones)
Rome (Italy), 150 AD, Altes Museum, Berlin
The motif of the seated young girl dates back to a late Hellenistic model, wich in the Roman version was supplemented by the game gesture. The knucklebone game often also depicted on funerary reliefs and the portrait-like features of the girl indicate a sepulchral purpose of the sculpture.
