Damaged whit marble statue. Musée lapidaire, Arles. Found in 1598.

Dressed torso of a standing Aion, whose head and legs got lost. The two hands, which he presses against his breast and in which he probably held a key, are broken off. A serpent, winding itself in three coils round the god's body, rests its head on the god's breast. Between these coils in groups of three, the nine signs of Zodiac have been represented in a graceful way.
