Clio, Monte Calvo, 2nd century CE, marble, Nye Carlsberg Glyptoteket (Copenhagen, Denmark). MAde with Memento Beta.
The young woman sits on a rock. In analogy with similar representation in the Vatican, she held a book scroll on her lap from which she was reading. She is Clio, the Muse of History. In Greek mythology, Clio (“made famous” or “to make famous”), also spelled Kleio, is the muse of history, or in a few mythological accounts, the muse of lyre playing. Like all the muses, she is a daughter of Zeus and the Titaness Mnemosyne.
