The snake god Agathos Daimon is represented as a uraeus, crowned with the sun-disk. He sits in a sort of shrine, resembling a false door, but topped with an arch in which a sun disk with two uraei is depicted. The arch and the upper border of the false door are decorated with checkered inner bands. The whole is flanked by two columns, possibly lotiform, and crowned by a cornice with a row of uraei crowned with small sun disks.
The piece is executed in high relief, but superficially; it lacks detail, due to the bad quality of the stone.
