Grave stele from Lesbos, Piraeus Museum

The upper part of the stele, with palmette, of Diogenes son of Apollonides, from Pyrrha on Lesbos. The delicate workmanship of the palmette stands out thanks to the good state of preservation of the paint, especially the blue background of the stele. First half of 4th century BC.
