According to an archaeologist from the Ephorate of Antiquities of Ioannina, the stylistic features of the triangular-shaped relief, which appear to be part of a funerary stele, indicate a date "probably in the 4th century BC".

The seized antiquity was handed over to the Ephorate of Antiquities for safe-keeping and further assessment, said to the police announcement.
