This panel seems to be part of the same group as one at the Victoria and Albert Museum (242-1867), one in Brussels (Inv. 846) and one at the Montpellier Musée archéologique (SAM 857.17.1). See related objects. Davies argues for them coming from two different polyptychs (see Williamson and Davies 2014).
