For figures of the same workshop see Katsouros, 2002, p. 38, ill. 54 b, c, d - as well as AHDRC 0005133 & 0005139.

All figures show great similarities in physiognomy, especially with regard to the shape and strikingly asymmetrical arrangement of the eyes, as well as with regard to the particularly prominent noses.
