Marble relief showing a banquet and sacrifice. A male figure, half draped and wearing a polos reclines on a couch. He has a cup in his left hand and a rhyton in the right. Before him is a table with food. A woman is seated at the foot of the couch, with a cup in her left hand. On the left a boy stands beside a jar of wine, which is raised on a pedestal. At the left a woman, and two smaller figures approach as worshippers. Above, the head of a horse is seen looking through an opening. The relief is bound by two pilasters, surmounted by an entablature, above which are roof tiles.
