Gravestone of a woman with child, found in Carlisle.
The most elaborate gravestone discovered in Carlisle depicts a fashionable woman with her son. Her pet bird sits on her lap. The stone is framed by a winged sphinx holding a skull with two lions in profile devouring human heads.
The inscription to the tombstone has broken off and is lost.
