PROCESSION OF AMPHITRITE AND POSEIDON
Two of the Nereides, daughters of the god Nereus and of the nymph Doris and maids of the sea gods, are here represented while riding sea beasts and heading a procession of Amphitrite and Poseidon themselves.
The Ithaca relief is freely inspired by the Domizio Enobarbo altar, preserved in Munich, Glyptothek, but sculpted in Rome in 100 – 70 b.C.
