It carved with silver marble and partially inlaid with ivory and gold. Unfortunately, it destroyed in the Byzantine Empire.
In this Greek goddess sculpture, she wears a helmet and a long dress of Greek style. The breastplate and armor are with snake shaped trimmings and human heads. She bare her arms, and through her thin clothes and skirts, we could see her beautiful and powerful body. The whole image is full of feminine tenderness and full of life.

It not only displays the characteristics of ancient Greek characters, but also vividly portrays the elegant temperament of Athena and the image of soldiers.
