Original in the Tomba delle Leonesse (Tarquinia, c. 510 B.C.). Contour-drawing of a young boy (?) standing on a stool and holding a flute and a flower. The artist has rendered a pair of feet of a man lying in front of the boy in a peculiar manner. C. Jacobsen showed great interest in the representation which he compared to the Apollo Piombino.
