Fragment of a plaque, probably originally rectangular, in translucent dark blue and opaque white cameo glass. The decoration, in white, shows a winged figure of Eros looking down in three-quarter view to the right. His right leg is bent up behind him and only the top of the left leg is preserved. His right arm hangs down behind him and the upper part of his left leg is visible, being held down in front. Behind him, partly covered by his wing, is a pillar, or possibly a tree.
