A statue base

I will, embarrassingly, have to go back to the archaic period for a moment as I found this beautiful statue base among my photos. This is thus the kind ob bases that (at least some) of the statues previously shown stood at. This piece is from ca 510 BC and was, as you can see, painted. This side depicts two youths arranging a cat vs. dog fight.
