Found at Epidauros. Probably from an altar of the Twelve Olympian Gods.
Asklepios is depicted seated on the front with Epione or Hygeia,
though according to another view they are Zeus and Hera.
On the left narrow side is a depiction of Nike with open wings,
which spread on to the front of the slab, while the right side has
a depiction of an Archaistic female figure holding an oinochoe.
350-325 B.C. or - according to a recent view- work o the 1st cent. B.C.
influenced by 4th cent. B.C. originals
