Athens, EM 2785 4th c. (?) Plate 96

Provenance unknown. Left edge of moulding, part of battered left edge of relief preserved, otherwise broken all around and back. Relief bordered below by taenia inscribed Θ[ΕΟΙ] and ovolo, together 0.085 wide. Surface very worn, battered, corroded. White, medium-grained marble. p.h. 0.23, p.w. 0.18, p.th. 0.125, relief h. ca. 0.02.

The body of the inscription is not preserved. On the left is a seated figure facing right, preserved only from the thighs down. The figure is probably male; there are no folds of an undergarment showing beneath the himation. He appears to be leaning somewhat forward, with his right hand resting on the rocky seat. The figure is too worn for even an approximate dating.

Svoronos, 670 no. 451 (5), pl. 223.5; Meyer, 311-12 A 168, pl. 53.1.
