This is a votive relief found at the Amphiareion.
A picture can be seen here: http://outopia.gr/ancient/attiki/relief1.jpg
It is kept at the Athens Archeological Museum.

Read about Amphiaraus here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphiaraus
Lots of links for the Amphiareion.

The inscription reads:
ΑΡΧΙΜΟΣ ΑΜΦΙΑΡΑΩΙ ΑΝΕΘΗΚΕΝ, i.e.
Dedicated by Archimos to Amphiaraus.
