This was not a public monument, but was built by a private individual named Lysikrates who had won a tripod for being a theatrical sponsor in 334 BC. The monument consists of the tripod set on a small cylindrical building with Corinthian columns, which in turn is set on a tall square base. The frieze shows Dionysos and Satyrs.
