Content (description)

On far left a young girl, draped, stands leaning on a pillar. Dionysus, draped, bearded and garlanded, stands on left by the couch, supported by a nude youth, while a nude garlanded youth kneels on the ground to remove the god's sandal. On the couch reclines Icarius, half-draped but with his head covered, a woman with him. He gestures to Dionysus. A curtain is fixed in two drapes behind the head of the couch. On right a bearded and garlanded Silenus, wearing boots and a loose drape across his body, plays the double pipes to right, where a bearded male wearing a tunic embraces or supports a female with long flowing hair who seems to be sinking to the ground. She carries a small-handled pot or a tiny basket. On far right stands a herm, bearded and garlanded, on a rectangular pedestal.
