A reconstruction of a kithara. Similarly to the barbitos, wooden frame with a horizontal bar resting across the top to which the seven strings are attached. Ornate carving and curls down each side. The lower part is a thicker section of wood with a bridge (as on our stringed instruments of today) to hold the strings taught. Zig zag carving at base for decoration and a red ribbon for the musician to hold attached to bottom right.
