Long Description:
The placard accompanying this sarcophagus reads:

"Sarcophagus with Lions

The curving sides of this basin-type
sarcophagus have been preserved,
decorated with lions attacking horses. A
drill was skillfully used to create a contrast
of light and shade in marble,
suggesting a date around 270 AD."
