This larger-than-life statue is of  Claudia Antonia Tatiana., a local matron, who was honored by the city of Aphrodisias.  The statue was found in the Bouleuterion

Her hairstyle follows that of the empress Julia Domna, and a small Eros stood at her side.  The plinth is signed: Alexandros son of Zenon made (this).  (from the museum description)
