Content (description)

On each side of the relief is a pillar. On left a bearded man gestures to left but looks right towards a draped woman. She points to a draped child between them, who also gestures to the man. On right of the woman a girl carries a large bowl, moving left but looking right up to a large statue of a man in a toga, holding out a roll. This statue stands on a low base. On right a statue of a bearded man in a himation stands on a column with a leafy capital and garlands slung round its base. By the side of this statue on right a draped bearded man, with his head covered, pours a libation at a blazing altar, which is decorated with a figure in relief. On far right two draped men stand watching.
