"This monument is the oldest of the Laconian hero reliefs. It depicts heroised deceased with distinct attributes of their removed status (throne, snake, receptacle for offerings, worshippers). It is also suggested by inscriptions that the tumuli of Spartan heroes were crowned by reliefs of this kind." - Altes Museum, Berlin (around 540 BCE).

Satyrs and Silenoi were wild hybrid creatures in the retinue of Dionysus, the god of wine and theatre. They formed the chorus in the satyr play, led by Papposilenus." - Altes Museum, Berlin (Roman copy circa 100 CE of Greek 4th century BCE original).

I found the labelling in this room of the Neues Museum a bit lacking so I think this is still part of the Offering Chamber of Merib but I'm not sure.
