A sarcophagus, whose main face is decorated with frieze allusive to the four Seasons. In the centre of the panel there is a portrait of the deceased, within a medallion supported by two winged victories and flanked by the spirits of the seasons. There is a shepherd playing the Pan-pipes at one end of the frieze and two youths treading grapes in a wine vat at the other.

The piece exhibits a sculptural value of classic style, with disposition of the figures in the frieze, in profile and dressed in Roman garb. It has religious connotations, swathed in awe of the mystery of eternal life in its evocation of the cult of Bacchus, through the symbols of the grape harvest and wine-press, suggesting the pleasures of the after-life.
