A fragment of a Roman sarcophagus, c 300 CE, Modena marble.
The scene shows the return from a hunt and shows a wild boar and two hinds crammed into a heavy two-wheeled cart, the plaustrum, pulled by two oxen. Three hunters and two dogs accompany the cart. The slab was reused in the 19th century CE, the back was used as an epitaph for the tomb of a nun who died in 1803 CE.
