L. on a rocky mass, fig. seated R. seen in profile. Head small with short hair, neck slender ; body leans back in easy attitude, and was prob. supported by L. elbow. R. leg stretched out before body, knee slightly bent, foot flat on ground. L. knee raised higher and more sharply bent. R. arm bent at elbow, hand extended horizontally over knees, holding a phiale (?).

Condition : Of the human fig. the R. shoulder and upper arm are broken away ; all the rest is decipherable, but only R. thigh to ankle, standing in very high relief, is well preserved. Of eagle, breast, thighs, R. talon, part of
L. wing and tail are preserved, breast and L. thigh in very high relief.
