This stele was discovered by Schliemann in situ over the grave it belonged to. The relief decoration is divided horizontally into two registers. The upper register bears three rows of connected spirals. The lower register illustrates a battle or hunting scene, which probably commemorated the deceased's exploits. It shows a man driving a single horse chariot holding the reins in his left hand and a sword in his right hand. He drives to the right towards a standing man who brandishes a sword. Spiral motifs frame the scene. The artist sketched the composition directly onto the stone, engraved the outlines, then sculpted the figures to obtain a high degree of relief. The iconography of this scene, and of other funerary stelai from Mycenae's shaft graves, is clearly Mycenaean and is also paralleled on metal artifacts of this period.
