Both women wear exceptionally costly pearls; the younger woman's hairstyle dates her to the period of the Flavian emperors.
These woman, wearing pearl earrings and gemstone necklaces, date from the second century CE, while the bearded male lived during the third century.
These portraits date from the third to the fourth centuries CE. The narrow stripes on the man's tunic identify his rank as equestrian, and he holds a glass of red wine and a rose petal wreath.
A different style sarcophagus dating from the second century CE has the
clothing painted on a flat cartonnage, while the portrait head is
three-dimensional head; note this equestrian male's elaborate pendant and the
wine cup and flowers he is holding.
