This statuette was reconstructed from two fragments previously not identified as related: a so-called Aion linv. α 9222) and a so-called Vulcan (inv. X 16185). The association was made on the basis of similarities in style, technique, craftsmanship and material, and in the dimensions of the cross-sections of the torso. However, the two fragments do not join and the restored figure seems slightly disproportionate.
Fragment 1, found 'in a bath and put on sale in Bonn in 1823, consists of a human torso and the head of a lion.
