Due to the adventures of the monument, preserved are only a few fragments from the pediments of the Temple of Athena Nike, which makes the identification of their subjects uncertain. It has been suggested that the east pediment featured the Gigantomachy and the west the Amazonomachy.
This fragment comes from a garment, perhaps a himation, which falls on a plinth. At the back, at the lowest edge of the folds, a round hole was opened. In it fitted a dowel with the help of which the depicted figure to whom the garment belonged was fastened to the pediment’s cornice.
