Lower part of a marble relief with two goddesses


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 153

Adaptation of the Great Eleusinian Relief of ca. 450–425 B.C.

The two goddesses are closely related to the figures of Demeter and Persephone on the Great Eleusinian Relief, a cast of which is displayed nearby. The altarlike incense burner between them must be an addition of the Roman copyist. This relief is said to have been found at Eleusis.
