Description   

Because the framing niche that ounce surrounded this relief is missing, they are no inscriptions that might identify the deceased. Both the seated man and the veiled woman behind him stare straight ahead. Carved by a master, this grave stele is one of the most magnificent examples that have survived from the classical period.
