physical_description
This relief shows hunting scenes. From the right a squat little man uses his right hand to push his lance into the fangs of an elongated lion. With his left hand he grasps the hilt of the sword slung around him. The hunter wears a long wide garment with sleeves, which reaches his feet. Behind the lion, an archer kneeling on his right knee is bending his bow, his oversized quiver placed behind him on the ground. In the second fragment, a man is attacking the lion from the back with his lance.
