Content (description)

21: ithyphallic Pan, carrying pipes, follows a maenad who dances to right, her drapery billowing. She plays the tympanum and looks back over her shoulder at him. There is a tiger by her feet.
22: Pan, with a skin flying over his back, bends over a maenad who lies asleep, resting on an overturned vase with drapery over her legs. A leafy tree branch spreads above from right with a drape or skin hanging from it.
23: a bearded nude satyr, who carries a bunch of grapes and wears a wreath, and a maenad with billowing drapery dance to right, an arm round each other's shoulders and looking back to left.
24: on right an infant Pan rides a ram to right, at the foot of an ithyphallic Pan herm. By the herm on left is a large round altar, decorated in relief with two satyrs supporting drunken Silenus. A tall basket stands on the altar among the offerings; an amphora stands on left in the foreground. In the background a swag of drapery hangs from a tree.
The rest of the vase is sketched in roughly around the reliefs on each drawing.
