Plaster; Diam. 4 5/16 in. (11 cm)
Fletcher Fund, 1931 (31.11.15,.16,.17)
The plaster reliefs were cast from Late Classical and Hellenistic metal reliefs. They probably date to the Early Imperial period, when similar examples are known from Egypt, Rome, the Black Sea region, and Afghanistan. The widespread existence of these reliefs across the Roman empire and along its trade routes reflects Roman collectors' interest in earlier Greek works.
