Relief Fragment of Three Men Facing Right


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Three men with close-cropped hair (or close-fitting skullcaps) wear uncommon long garments with short sleeves. Each man grasps his wrist with his other hand. The gesture is associated with the period when Egypt was part of the Persian Empire. The significance of the gesture is unknown, but it suggests humility in the presence of a superior.
