This 33 inch Hellenistic-period Greek marble statue of Tyche, identified by the crown shaped as a city wall. The thin chiton gathered and sewn to a neckband is common to goddesses on the altar at Pergamon among others. Over the chiton Tyche wears a peplos, an old-fashioned garment which was not often portrayed by Hellenistic artists. This peplos is different than Classical peplophoroi in that it is long enough to trail on the ground. Getty Museum.
