View looking at one of the six statues in the "Geneleos Group" of statues that lined the pavement of the sacred way that led from ancient Samos to the Temple of Hera. 

A Greek inscription on the statue identifies this figure as Philippe.  Note the fine pleating on the drapery of the kore.

This statue is in the Archaeological Museum in Samos (Vathi).   It dates to the Archaic Period around 560 B.C. and is made of local marble.

2,000 statues, tombs, and monuments lined the 5 mi. [8 km.] long sacred way including the giant Kouros.
