Found northwest of Athens near the ancient Academy. The face
and sides of the base are sculpted with battle scenes between a rider,
the deceased, and a fallen hoplite.
Certain details, such as the rider's spear and the horse's reins would
have been rendered in paint. The upper surface bears a rectangular
cutting for the insertion of a stele.
Early 4th century B.C.
