  • On this statue, we can see a small character and think that it is Pallas who is actually Triton's daughter. I think she had to hold a shield in one hand and a laurel wreath in the other. (To date these elements have disappeared from the sculpture) Above the head, I think these are two snakes supposedly represented wisdom and knowledge. Pallas was killed by Athena and then Athena took the name Pallas Athena The is cassandra, known for her great beauty. Apollo granted him the gift of prophecy, which accepted but refused to give herself to him. So Apollo cursed him so that no one could listen to him even through his own family. I think this statue traces the episode where it was raped by Ajax while it was clinging to the statue of Athena. This is my personal opinion because Greek mythology is not easy to understand.
