Print description

The composition appears in an engraved aedicula with a triangular pediment supported on straight columns (the column on the right is preserved). Two figures are depicted on the stela: a woman reclining on a couch and another woman standing before her in a prayerful attitude. The scene may be reconstructed despite considerable damage; presumably there was a third praying figure depicted on the right side.

The composition appears in an engraved aedicula with a triangular pediment supported on straight columns (the column on the right is preserved). Two figures are depicted on the stela: a woman reclining on a couch and another woman standing before her in a prayerful attitude. The arrangement of the two figures and their dress repeat a composition that is known from other stelae showing the deceased at a funerary banquet with a praying figure, this time with both legs in left profile, standing at the side. Elements of the repast, a sheaf of corn in out-line and a three-legged table, are engraved under the coach. The scene may be reconstructed despite considerable damage; presumably there was a third praying figure depicted on the right side.
