Inv. Scu 2011
The fragmented relief shows a complex depiction arranged into two registers: in the upper scene, framed to the left by a leafy tree, there is a Muse holding a Silenic mask; on her left, there is a small temple behind which there is a young boy with a double flute.
The lower register illustrates the actual initiation scene; two nude young boys are being led by a Satyr towards the initiation site. Behind them, there are the symbols of the Dionysian rite: the mystic basket, a thyrsus and a statuette of Priapus.
The scene is set in a rural context where the Dionysian Mysteries were held.
