Fragment with an amorino, perhaps from the side of a false gable panel. A vertical right-hand border register contains the remains of two narrow compartments separated horizontally by a lotus consisting of an obconical gynoecium projecting above down-turned stamens and petals. The lotus is both a pedestal for the now vestigial upper figure and a parasol, which the complete amorino holds in his left hand by a curving stalk. He is bare, showing genitals, one leg crosses the other and one hand is on his hip. The sequence was probably repeated along the whole height of the original piece as on BM 1902.1002.6 and BM 1902.1002.7. Nothing remains of any inner register.
