Content (description)

On right a putto with a narrow drape across his thighs, stands on rocks and pours libation at a burning altar. In the background Pan, with a skin slung across his torso, plays the double pipes. On left of altar stands a nude female, her hair flowing down her back. On left a draped man stands facing the viewer, holding a roll in his right hand and resting his outstretched left hand on two baskets (?) held by a bearded draped man on right. Four tall full baskets stand on the ground in a row in the foreground in front of the second man. On far left a winged putto moves into the background on a rock. The subject of the left part of the relief would seem to be either a trader or perhaps the feeding of the five thousand.
