Limestone pediment fragment

Greek, South Italian, Tarentine

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 162

The relief comes from the pediment of a small funerary monument (naiskos), showing a hippocamp (male sea monster) holding a rudder and shield. Similar limestone sculpture is attested at Tarentum, and this piece matches the style and workmanship of the other examples displayed here.
