Rectangular sarcohpagus (mid 3rd century a.d.). On the front clipeus with portrait of the two deceased among winged genii. On the flanks winges sphinxes with the front pars stretched over a goat head. Gable top with light steepness.

Well, they look like putti, or anatomically correct cherubs, to me: naked little boys with wings.
