Panel Carved in the "Beveled Style" with Remains of Later Polychromy

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 451

This panel belonged to a long horizontal frieze with a continuous undulating pattern. The remnants of blue and red paint and traces of gold leaf are from a later date in antiquity. These remnants indicate that most of the panel's surface would have been vibrantly colored.
