The high relief we reproduce is part of one of the friezes from the Temple of Apollo Epikourios at Basas, in the Peloponnese region, near Figalia. These high reliefs are in the British Museum, London.
The temple has been dated from 450 BC to the beginning of the 4th century BC.
Pausanias tells that this temple was consecrated by the inhabitants of Figalia to Apollo Epicurus, whose nickname of Epicurus is due to the help of Apollo in the plague that devastated Figalia during the Peloponnesian War.
