Upper part of a marble face. From the Asklepieion in Athens. Around 350 B.C.
On the eyebrows and the inner part of the eyelids some traces of red pigment survive. The iris is of brown, the pupil of grey stone. The eyeball and the inner part of the corner of the eye are rendered in white and red stone respectively. The head was fastened into a poros block which had niches of various sizes for inserting the votive gifts. The inscription carved on the poros block informs us that it was an offer of Praxias to Asclepius for healing his wife.

Today, how many hours will tumble

into the well, into the net, into time:

gradual, implacable,

they cluster together

like fish, they keep falling

in fistfuls, like pebbles, like bottles.

There underneath, hours

compose into days,

into months,

into illegible memories

and untenable nights,

into clothing and women and railroads and provinces;

time gathers,

hours melt

into silence

or crumble away, the acid

of the ultimate vestiges rains down,

the black water

of midnight’s inversion.

—Pablo Neruda, “Today How Many Hours” from Late and Posthumous Poems 1968-1974, ed. and trans. by Ben Belitt (Grove Press, 1988)
