physical_description
This badly damaged fragment shows two men eagerly making music. The one on the left holds a syrinx to his mouth with both hands. His face is flaked off. He wears a large cloak and covers his body in a wide swirl. The figure on the right is a drummer shown in profile. The head is destroyed as are parts of his right arm and his right leg.
