This sculpture shows Cephalus hodling Procris after she died from his javelin. This sculpture is however missing a crucial fact of the story. Procris had a javelin in her when she died as you can see there is none in this picture.
This photo also depicts the scene shown by the scultpture above, but has the two characters in the story dressed in clothes. However, these clothes were not traditional Roman clothing. Also, note the arrow in the bottom left hand side of the painting. This arrow is not accurate because Procris was killed by a javelin and probably would have been bleeding which is also not depicted in the photo accuratly.
