Description The summary relief, framed by an incised hatched border, shows a man, probably Eros, nude and with an arrow, and a woman, probably Psyche, partially draped, beside him. The bottom is broken and a lower piece has been reattached. Two oval plaques in the Benaki Museum, Athens, show an identical subject and positioning of holes, top and bottom, for pinning the pieces to a backing. Only one hole is preserved on the Walters piece. The function of these oval plaques is unknown.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1925, by puarchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
