Description
This sarcophagus is roughed-out with the point chisel used relatively finely all over. The forms of the garland and their associated hanging elements are more carefully modelled than on other examples, perhaps because work was never intended to be taken any further.

Notes

This is a different form of roughed-out garland sarcophagus from those seen in PR305_01_03 and PR305_01_06.
