Thracian funerary bas-relief
Thracian funerary bas-relief, Greece, Thessalonica, 64 CE, Marble. Musée d’Art et d’Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap Pro from AutoDesk.
The Thracian horseman is carved in the upper register. On his prancing horse, he brandished a spear in the direction of a boar, already threatened by his dog. Before him stands a veiled woman. The four characters in the lower register probably represent the family of the deceased. The epitaph runs on the edge of the stele. It is dated, to the year, according to the era of Actium (which begins in 31 BCE).
“(Such an one to such), her husband, and to Pyrrhus, her (father?), In remembrance, and to themselves alive (still). In the year 95.”
