White marble relief (H. 0.71 Br. 0.49). About the discovery of this monument little is known. According to Cavedoni it was à l'époque de Muratori (1672-1750) dans le palais du Marquis Sigismund d'Este à San Martino in Rio, terre du duche de Reggio, distante de 8 milles de cette cité and he adds an hesitating datum about its origin: Comme ce seigneur de S. Martino possedait d'autres antiquités de Rome, il parait assez vraisemblable que le bas-relief est aussi d'origine romaine. is powered by Enkidū
