    Rectilinear mold-made terracotta plaques decorated with painted reliefs were a common form of decoration on the interior walls of private villas, public baths, and monumental tombs during the late Republic and early Imperial periods (ca. 50 B.C.–50 A.D.). They often depicted scenes derived from Classical Greek art and mythology, as here.
