|Figure 1 - Roman Period Terracotta coffin|
|Figure 2 - Face of the Coffin|
In figure 2 we get a close up view of the deceased's face. She is shown as having bright red cheeks, red lips and long eyelashes. Her nose is poorly modeled and the whole effect is to make the coffin look odd, rather than to make it look nicer.
