A robust wild boar rushes to Anchee, while Meleager is brandishing a lance with his arm. Behind the boar of Calydon, Theseus is about to strike him with a stick. On the upper edge and in the field, a later epitaph is engraved in bad characters of the third century: “I have received the tomb … and the columns” and “¨ [This tomb belongs to] Markos Aurélios Anikétos. ‘One, by violence, comes to place some other [body, he will suffer a punishment].’
