Content (description)

On far right a satyr with his back turned to the viewer stands by a slender tree. Two youths leading two captives with their hands bound behind their backs head the procession to right. On the ground is a basket holding fruit, a snake and a tortoise. Then comes a chariot drawn by two tigresses, with putti sitting on their backs holding the reins. In the chariot stands a draped female, supported by Pan. In the background behind the tigresses are two bearded satyrs, one carrying a vase, the other a pedum. In the middle of the procession are a maenad with billowing drapery blowing a horn, a bearded satyr carrying a putto on his shoulder and a maenad with billowing drapery, who dances and plays the tympanum. At the end of the processsion comes the youthful Dionysus, wearing a skin and holding a thyrsus, supported by a satyr and accompanied by a Victory with outspread wings. He rides in a chariot drawn by a centaur and centauress, who blows a horn. A tiger runs beneath the centaur.
