Tombstone of Eubolos

From Tanagra in Boiotia, 3rd century BC
A very fine example of the oblong type, found only in Boiotia, in Thebes, Tanagra and Thespiai. The distinctively Boiotian helmet, shield and griffin decoration show him to have been a military man. The lettering is in relief in a sunken field, a style characteristic of the region. His name Ευβωλος is the Boiotian dialect form of Ευβουλος. No patronymic is given.
