Fragment from near top with hole for suspension made after the plaque broke. Max. dim. 0.059; Th. 0.0081. W. B. Dinsmoor, Hesperia Suppl. V, p. 132, fig. 58:10.

Combat. At the left is part of a round shield seen from the inside held by a warrior attacking to right. His opponent has a Boiotian shield emblazoned with a rosette between two serpents. Above the shield are the shaft and point of his spear. All that remains of this warrior is a bit of his corslet and one thigh. At the very top is a little of the reserve line, which indicates the frame and just below it, at the break, traces of the original hole for suspension, which is glazed on the inside. The rim of the round shield is incised (compass-drawn), as are the rosette and markings on the serpents on the Boiotian shield. Relief contour. Red: heart of rosette.
