This is a Neo-Attic relief of the so-called "kalathiskos dancer". The relief shows a dancing woman in waving robes and with a basket-like headdress (kalathiskos). Stylistically, the relief can be attributed to the so-called "Neo-Attic workshops" in Athens, which produced copies of classical models for the Roman art market since the 1st century CE. Marble. Roman copy, 1st century CE. Acquired in Florence, Italy, in 1892 CE. It is on display at the Altes Museum in Berlin, Germany.
