Nereid FriezeYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Part of the fourth frieze, which surmounts the cella of the Nereid monument. It contains scenes of banqueting and sacrifice. This slab shows a banquet scene. A bearded man, facing front, wearing a broad taenia, reclines on a couch with a cushion under his left elbow. He holds a rhyton, terminating in the forepart of a winged ibex, in his right hand. In his left hand he holds a bowl. He probably represents King Arbinas, depicted as an Oriental. An elderly, bearded man, standing near the head of the couch, whispers into his ear. There are three attendants: on the far left one carries a small bowl and a jug; the middle one extends his left hand to the right; the third extends his hand towards the rhyton. A dog lies beneath the couch. Three holes are visible where a cavity piece is missing.
