Apollo, rays surrounding his head, naked apart from sandals and his cloak billowing behind him, rides in a quadriga, the four horses rearing on clouds, and raises his right arm, pointing to the flaming sun eclipsed by the moon; in the background, two signs of the Zodiac, Virgo and Leo, and stars; beaded border.
