Fragment of a relief: Orpheus among the animals


Limestone 
Limestone origin: local

 

Microfacies: the sample is altered but we recognize fragments of shells.

It is realistic to expect that this rock has been extracted in the country of the sculpture workshop where this artefact was carved. This variety of limestone is not very prestigious for exportation.
