This lovely 3D image from the British Museum is on the fabulous online platform Sketchfab. The detail is sufficient to see the individual characters inscribed n the stone.

There are also lots of other images from the museum and elsewhere. They have the Lewis chess pieces, and various classical statues, all in huge detail. You can pan, rotate and zoom in: cue hours of happy exploration.
