About this work


Relief in the form of a shrine, offering of Archinos to Amphiaraos (according to the inscription below the figures). On the left Amphiaraos, standing, is treating the r. shoulder of a young man. The latter is represented again, at the back, asleep on a bed, while the snake glides over his shoulder. On the edge a third scene: the dedication of a stele, with relief by Archinos to the shrine of the god. High in the centre of the cornice two apotropaic eyes. Found in the precint of Amphiaraos at Oropos. A splendid example of its kind, noteworthy for its representation of successive episodes.
