This small marble stele represents a deceased woman inside an architectural arrangement with triangular pediment in the shape of a naiskos. She sits on a large chair whose backrest goes up to her shoulders. She holds a small jug in her left hand and an unidentified object against her chest in her right hand. In front of her, a small round table, partially engraved, has a pot placed on it. A single line of text below the scene indicates Ἰουλία εὐψύχ(ε)ι, “Julia, farewell!” as an epitaph.
May have originated from Alexandria(?)
