The model, (Miss W.), holding a spear, may be demonstrating a belted 'Peplos'. She wears an additional fabric sash, perhaps symbolizing Athena's aegis, with a Gorgoneion on it. Barker, an alumnus of Haverford College (1917), received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania (1921), with his thesis,"A Complete Classification of the Chitons worn by Greek Women as Shown in Works of Art."
