- Curator's comments
- The type is sometimes associated with the Aphrodite Pselioumene, a statue by Praxiteles mentioned by Pliny. The meaning of 'Pselioumene' is disputed, with the Greek word 'pselion' variously translated as necklace, armlet or anklet (Liddell-Scott only give the latter two options). An identification of this sculptural type with Praxiteles' Pselioumene is thus doubtful.
