Found northeast of Athens, in Psychiko. A young mother seated on a stool
looks sorrowfully at her baby, that is held by another standing woman
and extends its arms toward its mother. The name of the dead woman, Phylonoe
is recorded in the epigram carved on the epistyle. On the basis of similarities
in the rendering to the figures, this particularly expressive work is
attributed to the sculptor of the grave relief no. 726
First quarter of the 4th century BC
