Description:   Inscribed fragment of grave relief of Athenokles.
Broken at the bottom. The full width is preserved, but the surface is chipped at the right.
Preserved is the head of a bearded man, left, wearing a petasos. In the upper right corner of the field is the end of his staff. The field is framed at either side by a carefully profiled anta, above by an "epistyle" with a broad slightly sunken fascia between two narrow ones, and a crowning moulding consisting of an ovolo and a plain fascia.
Back rough picked; sides toothed; top smooth.
The flesh surfaces polished; the hair carefully rendered; background and hat left slightly rough.
The inscription, in two lines, is cut on the central fascia of the epistyle. On the ovolo was a painted egg and dart, 0.032m. on centers.
About fourty-one lines of the inscription preserved.
Pentelic marble.
