- <P>A Marble Relief Fragment, Roman Imperial</P>
probably from the corner of a monumental lion-hunt sarcophagus, finely carved in high relief with the figure of a young hunter wearing a chlamys fastened on his right shoulder, his head carved almost in the round and turned sharply to his right, with dimpled chin, parted lips, straight nose, large eyes with recessed crescentic pupils and incised irises, and long sideburns, the hair swept up and back from the forehead in long deeply-drilled wavy locks.
