Tomb of Payava, West Side

This relief, which is seen on the south side of the Payava Tomb, depicts a seated Persian, apparently a satrap or governor, with attendent figures. The inscriptions in Lycian probably mention the name of the satrap as Autophradates. The Payava tomb is a limestone tomb with gabled roof. It was decorated with reliefs on its four sides and inscribed with Lycian inscriptions. It was made in Lycia; found in Xanthus. Greek Period, circa 375-362 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
