Content (description)

On right a half-draped female with two attendants pours a libation on flames at the foot of a column, which stands on a pedestal. There are flames at the top of the column, near the top of which there is a phallus in relief. On left a male, wearing only a cloak and a garland, dances (?), as also does a female who is partly hidden by the column. The head of the male seems to be a portrait, and according to Fa2 (now Fa3) is 'un Cesare'.
