Two women at tomb

In the center, an altar stands before the burial mound. On the left, a woman approaches with fillets (bands). On the right, another woman pours water form a kalpis (water jar), which she holds by the horizontal handles. This representation provides a rare picture of a ritual being performed at a tomb.
