The head of the youthful god turns to the left and slightly downwards with his eyes upraised. His wavy hair is centrally parted and tied in a bun at the nape of his neck, two short locks escape onto his forehead, whilst two others fall in front of each ear. He has a long neck, narrow jawline, plump lips and strong nose, his irises incised and pupils drilled. Small losses to the nose, chin and right eyebrow. Some pitting to the surface. The separately-made crown of the head is missing; remnants of an iron pin in one of the two fixing holes.
