Marble theatrical mask

From Kerameikos, near Dipylon. 2nd c. BC.
ΕΑΜ, Γ 3373

Comic mask of a male figure displaying the typical features of the leading slave (hegemon therapon) of the New Comedy. The place it was found indicates a correlation with a certain funerary monument or, most probably, with the Bouleuterion (council chambers) of the Dionysiac Artisans, that was located near Dipylon.
