Description Two figures are carved in relief: a woman facing forward, with a veil for partial modesty, and a second figure, probably, but not necessarily a woman, facing away. Carefully drawn lines for features and hair contrast with the loose modeling of the fleshy figures. The object is intact except for the broken tang, which once projected at the top. The surface is worn. The front is convex, but the back is flat with lateral ridges. The left and right sides are beveled inwards.
Provenance Kelekian ?; Henry Walters, Baltimore [date of acquisition unknown], by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
