This sarcophagus is made of Carrara marble and was discovered in 1800 as Saint-Irénée.

On this side of the sarcophagus, a Bacchante is playing a tambourine and is looking back at Pan.  Note the snake coming out of the basket, just below Pan.

The sarcophagus was produced in a workshop in Rome in the early third century A.D.
