Limestone stele with rounded top. The outline is regular and the edges are highlighted by a wide band painted red and a thin one painted black. The scene depicts a banqueter reclining on a kline. The mattress and cushions are decorated with an incised lattice pattern. The man is leaning against the cushions, legs crossed and wearing the usual outfit of chiton and himation. His flesh is painted red-brown and he holds a drinking cup with his right hand. The kline is accompanied by objects for the banquet: a sheaf of cereals, an amphora and a roughly drawn table. A single line of inscription occupies the lower part of the object. It is poorly engraved and, as a result, is difficult to read.
