Fragment of a funerary frieze
Late 4th - early 3rd century B.C.
Pietra tenera

Fragment made in Taranto for the decoration of tombs, made in a local stone called pietra tenera. The great ductility of the pietra tenera enabled the development of a local style that in some cases anticipated expressive trends (for example, “Pergamum Baroque”) typical of other periods and other centers of the Hellenistic world.

Provenance: From Taranto
Inventory: Inv. MB 148
