A marble statue of a woman (Inv.#63.9), exhibited at the AUB Museum, dates back to the Late Roman Period. She wears a long chiton, gathered in folds, opening above the right knee, a short tunic pleated vertically in several parts, and held by a belt just below the breasts. Her head and right arm are missing.
She is standing on a pedestal carved with a Greek inscription:
"Deskulis daughter of Deskulos, to Mên of Artemidôros, possessor of Axiotta, for her children, (in fulfillment of) her wish. "
Μηνὶ Ἀρτεμιδώρου Ἀξι-
οττα κατέχοντι ὑπὲρ τῶν
