The figure wears an undergarment with a broad flat fold down the center front, and small flat folds on either side, and it falls in two layers, one longer than the other. Over this he wears a toga trabiata, passing over the left shoulder and under the right arm, the end thrown over the left forearm. A folded end falls down the left arm from under the top fold of the toga. The back is a flat panel and is rough-picked, as is part of the right side. Otherwise the sides are flat and smooth.
