In this funerary stele, the deceased sits on a chair and appears to give a rounded object to a child (or maybe the reverse), who stands in front of him. Marble. Classical Period, near the end of the 5th century BCE. From Amisus, Samsun, in modern-day Turkey. (Museum of Archaeology, Istanbul, Turkey).
