A marble fragment of an architectural relief scultpure, depicting a portion of a scene from the myth of Clytemnestra. The fragment was part of a larger sculptural frieze which would have run around the entablature of a building or monument. This fragment has portions of the frieze, as well as the cornice, which is decorated with a bead and real design and egg and dart design above.
The myth of Clytemnestra, the unfaithful wife of the Homeric King Agamemnon, details her murder of her returned husband, and her subsequent revenge killing at the hands of her children, Elektra and Orestes . The fragment depicts Clytemnestra in the moment of her death, with breasts exposed - a convention for the violent death of a woman in Greco-Roman art. The exposed breast here carries a double meaning, evoking the maternal element of the story.
