"HEGESO, DAUGHTER OF PROXENOS"
So reads the inscription at the top of the stele.
At left a slave girl stands, holding out a jewellery box for Hegeso who has taken an item out of the box. The detail of the jewellery would most likely have been painted on. This monument acted as a funeral stele, and most likely comes from the Kerameikos, it is 1.58m tall and 1.00m wide. It is a low relief sculpture in the high classical style, made of Parian marble, and dates to c. 410- 400 BCE. (National Archaeological Museum, Athens, NM 3624).
