Tombstone of Aphrodeisia, daughter of Theudoros, from Epirus (Volos Λ28)

Aphrodeisia wears earrings, a sleeveless dress and a light blue himation (mantle) with a wide pink hem that is drawn over her head as a veil.  She is seated on an elaborately carved cushioned chair in an interior space. She is united in dexiosis (handshake) with a boy, dressed in a chitoniskos (knee-length dress) and chlamys (cloak).  Below the figural scene is a herm on a high base.
