<Location> Kerameikos Site, Athens, Attica, Greece
A sarcophagus of the Roman period, probably later second century CE, found near the Dipylon Gate. It has a form of couch and decorated with elegant relief (see next page for the detail).
Detail of the sarcophagus. The relief so elaborate and soft that it looks more like textile than marble.
