Greco-Persian Funerary Stele. Fifth century BC. From Daskylaion (Aksakal, Manyas). Inv. nr. 5763, H. 221 cm. w. 62 cm. Regarded as one of the finest examples of its kind, according to the museums catalogue. It combines the characteristics of both Grecian and Persian sculptures. The cart with its many-spoked wheels, the horses with their tails bound tightly in the middle, the crown worn by the seated woman and the high boots worn by men, all are features of Persian art, while the form of the stele, the tripod and the vessel on top and the wife and her husband intimately sitting together are typical of Greek art.
