Pentelic marble. Found at Eleusis, Attica.
Herakles is depicted drunk, lying beneath a tree on a rock on which
he has spread his lion's pelt. He holds a skyphos in his left hand
and snaps the fingers of his raised right hand, setting the rhythm
for the young Satyr in front of him, who plays the double flute.
His club and his quiver hangs from a branch. The relief was probably
dedicated in the sanctuary of Herakles at Eleusis.
1st cent. B.C.
