Soane Corybantes Plaque



Corybantes were armed dancers who worshipped the Phrygian goddess Cybele with drumming and music. Soane owned two casts taken from a celebrated original Roman relief at the Vatican Museum. Found at Palestrina, the panel is taken from a first century copy of an original dating from the fourth century BC.
