The so called Cat Stele

This should have been posted about a week ago but I though that it would act as a good counterpart to the Dexileos stele. It dates to about 430 Bc and derive its name from the cat (?) under the bird cage at the left side. Notice how different the animal looks here compared to the one in this relief.

The young man is probably the deceased and under his arm a mourning boy.
