A ROMAN MARBLE STELE
CIRCA 2ND CENTURY-3RD CENTURY A.D.
In the form of a naiskos with an unadorned pediment, supported by two Corinthian columns, the upper parts fluted, framing a himation-clad standing male figure, his proper right arm across his chest holding drapery, his left grasping the folds at his side, head turned to the left gazing at the draped figure of a child leaning against a column, the child's head turned to meet his gaze, holding a rectangular object, an inscription in Greek running below the figures and another along the base reading: '...from Karpasos, blessed one, farewell'
