The Athenian relief carved in honour of an unknown hero commemorates a funerary banquet, with a number of motifs, such as the pillowed couch, the reclining gesture and the table laden with food, familiar from vases with symposium scenes.

Marble analyses conducted by Danielle Decrouez (Geneva, Museum of Natural History) and Karl Ramseyer (University of Bern, Institute of Geological Sciences) have shown that the relief was made of Pentelic marble. Click here for the detailed results.
