The male figure, found in the village of Begaljica, was made in a local workshop in the second half of the 3rd century. Slightly bent forward, it is dressed into a thin garment (stola) wrapped with a cloak (palla). The scroll of parchment in the left hand indicates that the statue represents a male. It probably shows a deserving citizen, a learned person, writer, philosopher, orator, teacher, or an important town official.
