Fragment of a small relief panel(?)

Curatorial note

The upper left corner of a small terracotta-type relief panel heavily coated with yellow paint and weathered beneath so as to make the subject nearly indistinguishable. The scene appears to involve a combat: a figure with cloak and short sword attacks another figure who falls toward the ground at his feet. Probably this is a fragment of a scene depicting the combat between the Greeks and Trojans, and it may be the remains of an Etruscan funerary urn.
