Statue of Thalia Muse of Comedy

Through looking up the museum notes on this statue I learned what a chiton, an himation and a pedum were – I had not come across the terms before.

The chiton and himation were types of costume, the chiton was a gown[1] whereas the himation was more of an outer garment[2].

The pedum was a stick associated with the god Pan[3]
