Detail of Eros on Sebasteion panel depicting Agon.
The lack of finish on the palm frond held by Eros in this detail shows how more attention was paid to some areas of the relief than others. Contrast this with the wing of Eros on which each feather is incised. This might be because a series of carvers were involved but more likely reflects the importance assigned to particular figures and their attributes by these carvers. There is no sense on any of the Sebasteion panels of a standard finish that had to be applied uniformly all across them. This panel is also notable for the depth of its relief. The figures are generally much more carefully modelled in deep relief than figures on other panels. The knees of Agon, in particular, have been accurately shaped.
