Archaeologists Discover 'Exceptional' 2,000-Year-Old Female Marble Statue

An "exceptional" marble statue from the Roman era has been discovered in Italy, researchers have announced. The statue dates to around 2,000 years ago—somewhere between the middle of the 1st century B.C. and the mid-1st century A.D. Researchers from the Spanish School of History and Archaeology of Rome (EEHAR)—part the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)—located the statue, which depicts a female figure, during excavations at the archaeological site of Tusculum.

Some characteristics of the statue have led researchers to conclude that it may have been linked to the cult of the god Dionysus. For example, the statue features a depiction of a fawn skin that the followers of the god's cult wore.
