Limestone stela with flat top and relief. Four registers. Above stands a bearded deity (Saturn) holding a "falx" (knife for cutting vines) in his right hand with his left hand is raised to his head. He wears a himition which leaves his chest bare. The bottom part of his body goes down to the register below. He is flanked by Dioscuri who wear belted tunics; their horses face forward. Below this a man and a woman stand in arches on either side of an altar, holding offerings, one hand over the altar. A large basket sits on the floor beside the woman who wears a stylised sleeved tunic and short mantle. The man also wears a stylised sleeved tunic and a mantle which comes across the waist and over his left arm. Below is a man with a bull. He wears a long belted tunic and holds a staff or cattle prod. On the other side of the bull is a figure wearing a long robe with a large basket on his head. In the bottom register are three supporting figures facing front. The eyes of the figures are incised. There are holes at various places on the border and beneath the figure of Saturn.
