Incomplete, Neo-Attick relief. 5 joining fragments. Low relief. White, unpainted marble. Back rough. In the center is a tripod preserved up to the level of the cauldron, standing on a tall shaft. To the left, a fully drapped female figure on 3/4 view facing the tripod extending both hands to a fillet on the tripod. To the right the lower part of a second figure, evidently male (a preist?), also facing the tripod is part of a staff (thyrsus?) resting on the projecting support of the shaft. The dress of the figure at the left terminates in stacked folds. That of the one at the right ends below in simple, vertical, even folds, to the ankle. He wears a cloak to calf level. The cauldron was evidently attached seperately in another material, perhaps bronze. The stone is cut down to recieve this attachment and there is a hole for a tenon.
