Grave relief for Euxenides, Athens, 330 BCE. Marble, Nye Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta (now ReMake) from AutoDesk.

The exact meaning of the handshake, dexiosis, in Attic grave reliefs is debatable, for a death in the family involved a farewell, but also the evocation of close ties with the deceased. The top and back of the grave relief were poorly scanned as the object was relatively tall and about 10 cm to the wall.
