"This Statue, grand, yet facile in style, is the most beautiful of the seated and draped portrait-statues known to us. It was found on the Viminni."--Catalogue of the Vatican. "Amongst the draped, sitting statues, those in the Vatican of the comic poets Menander and Posidippus have a conspicuous place; especially the former, who, so graceful in mien and pose, so earnest and at the same time so genial, seems prepared to appear as a buffoon or as a genius, according as circumstances shall determine."--Burckhardt. [P. 4.]
