Limestone stele with rounded top bearing a relief representing a man reclining on a kline, holding a drinking cup and a crown of justification. The folds of his chiton and himation are carefully engraved, following his anatomy. Just behind him, on the left, an incised dog is seated on a pedestal with a cornice. Framed by two sheaves of grain, the banquet furniture is composed of an amphora on a triangular stand, a rounded pot and a three-legged table. The stele bore an epitaph, painted black, now erased. Some traces of letters are still visible at the very end of the first line and at the beginning of the second.
