This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:

Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 100 years or fewer.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.

The scene depicted here is from fragment 8 of Priscus' Byzantine History:

When evening began to draw in, torches were lighted, and two barbarians came forward in front of Attila and sang songs which they had composed, hymning his victories and his great deeds in war. And the banqueters gazed at them, and some were rejoiced at the songs, others became excited at heart when they remembered the wars, but others broke into tears—those whose bodies were weakened by time and whose spirit was compelled to be at rest."

Attila is in the center; the young man to his left is probably his son Ellak (or Ernach), while the women at the top right and top left are his wives, including his senior wife Kreka. Priscus himself is on the right, holding the book labeled ἹΣΤΩΡΙΑ (an incorrect spelling of the Greek word ἹΣΤΟΡΙΑ, or Historia).
