Inscribed limestone tombstone of Ulpia Aurelia Valeria, with a scene of a banquet and a border of vines springing from a kalathos (bowl). Ulpia Aurelia Valeria sits on a wicker chair to the right of two adults reclining on couches. She is the same size as the adults, although she died aged three. In contrast the servants appear very small, reflecting the tone of the text, which stresses the family's high social standing. Latin text.
