Content (description)

A stream flows in left foreground and a man sits fishing on rocks at bottom left. On the bank of the stream on right is an irregular building, one wall of which is decorated with a draped female in relief. A sphinx lies on top of a projecting part of the entablature on left, while on right, a tripod stands on a tall column; two male statues stand on bases on far right. Over the building appears a baetyl, with a lyre attached to it. On left stands a long low building, from the ends of which project entablatures supported on columns and surmounted by panthers; there is a doorway in the centre and four large vases on the roof. Beyond this building on left is a round building, which has a row of tall thin windows near the top and an oscillum on its roof. Beyond the low building in the background is a small temple-like building. An awning hangs over the area in front of it. In the background are trees and hills. Along the lower edge is the inscription:
