Fragment of a Grave Relief for the Daughter of Kleomachos


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Originally, this scene depicted a man clasping the hand of a seated woman, whom the inscription identifies as ". . .te, daughter of Kleomachos and wife of Pheidippos." The maiden between them was either a daughter or servant. In keeping with Classical traditions, grief is not expressed directly through the man's facial expression, but rather by the mourning doves and the grieving gesture of the siren on the crown of the monument.
