Relief fragment with man leading a calf

Relief fragment with man leading a calf
The fragment shows the fringe of a kilt and the legs of a man with exceptionally long feet. The fringe of another part of his short kilt is just visible. The slender legs overlap a male calf on a rope. The calf has some kind of flower around its neck, possibly a bulrush bud. Part of a bag(?) carried by the preceding figure is visible. Calf and feet walk on a base line. The representation is finely executed in high relief.
