White marble female sculpture from Segóbriga, reproduced quite often in the Late Roman Empire.

Standing woman wearing a long tunic with shallow sculpting. It is believed that it may have been decorating the central entrance door of the "scaenae frons" (elaborate back scene) of Segóbriga theatre. This set was redesigned at the end of the 2nd century, together with other sculptures of muses and robed figures. Most of these were reused in other public buildings.
