However the top parts and bottom parts do not join. But the inscription and the remains of the paint establish it securely that all pieces belong to the same stele.)

A steeply angled pediment is topped with three acroteria. A rosette centers the typanum, which is outlined in read paint. A lively leaf pattern adorns the geison, under which is the inscription, partially filled in with red paint. Only fragment of the painted scene survives. A small girl, dressed in a blue-green chiton and wearing a white bead necklace, stands behind a circular altar. Her right arm is stretched out as if holding something out. To the right of the girl and altar is a column with a red shaft and blue-grey column capital.
