Macedonian Funerary Painting from Agios Athanasios

Not the easiest of images to track down a great for comparative iconography.  See academic publication  (no images) for discussion.

Click on images to see them better.  Notice the Macedonian shields.  The great feathers on the  sides of two of the warriors helmets.  The Rhyton is also really wonderfully depicted.  I don’t know what those attendants to the horse riders are carrying to my Roman eye they look like fasces, but I guess they must be torches as Tsimbidou-Avlonitou says.
