Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Sculpture: Tombstone at Descilaos".
Notes Possible latest date based on Gardner's publication of 1896 that is referenced in the 1900 and 1904 slide catalogue captions, but it may not be the same photograph. However, it cannot be any later than 1900. The background of this image appears to show the tombstone in situ.
