Description

This fragment shows three hunters armed with swords and round shields or rocks alternating with lions and rabbits, evidently the prey. It appears identical in technique, color, and artistic details to 1950.147, and was attached to it inappropriately when acquired by the museum. Presumably, it decorated the hemline with the figures “lying down,” as also seen in the bands flanking the tunic’s neck opening.
