Content: Written on border: "The maiden approaches the stele with a basket of offerings to the dead. The bandettes [i.e., bandelettes, or strips of cloth] are for adornment of the stele. The youth stands in an attitude of lamentation. Two winged eidolons, or phantoms, flutter towards the worshippers."
