FRAGMENT OF AN ATHENIAN FUNERARY RELIEF
The fragmentary relief shows the details of two female figures. A woman wearing a chiton and himation is seated on the left — she must be the deceased commemorated by the stela. Her bent arms are raised before her; we do not know what she once held, perhaps a flower. Both lower arms are decorated with wide bracelets. A similarly dressed young woman with long, wavy hair is standing before her. She raises her right hand, in which perhaps she once held a mirror; and lifts the edge of her finely draped chiton with her left hand. The elegant gesture suggests that she may be the daughter of the seated woman.
