Marble funerary relief framed by pilasters and an architrave. Two male figures recline on a couch - a bearded man holding a bowl in his left hand who places his right hand on the shoulder of a youth; a nude male cup-bearer stands with a jug on the right side of the relief, and on the opposite side is a young man wearing a tunic and chlamys (cloak) leading a horse. At the bottom of the relief is a Latin inscription reading 'Salenius Arcas (made this) for Aesculapius', a modern addition.
