The relief is broken irregularly above, on the right, and below. The surface is worn and weathered.
Rough filled moldings divide the two surviving registers of relief. In the upper, two horses walk to the right, two men in short tunics (or a figure riding side saddle awkwardly) on the one at the left. In the lower register, three figures (heads and shoulders only visible) are shown full face.
