23.11.31OO Profile figure facing the direction right. does not appear to be a Spartan warrior. possibly a Persian warrior or leader? face. helm and armour slightly visible though. defining feature is a ponytail at the back of his helm. not clear whether he is carrying any weaponry. representation of Persian King Darius or Xerxes from the Persian Wars? lead figures part of a large relief commemorating the war? or just used for ritual purposes with the flogging at the Temple of Artemis Orthia? pretty good condition. lead is an off-colour brown grey, similar to 23.11.31h. bears no similarity to the other lead warriors, as it is a lot thinner than them and lacks a shield. 2005.06.0099.jpg
