Gaziantep Museum 4060

I was informed that this is Galateia, who was one of the fifty Nereids; she's riding a sea-leopard (pardalokampos), like the one on the left in 4132, 4087, 4084, 4088, and 4089, which is ridden by
perhaps Astypalaia (Europa's sister who was abducted by Poseidon).

I thank my viewer for this information.
