(a) Dionysiac group: A seated Satyr is playing on the flutes to a Maenad who stands before him on the right; her hair is gathered in a knot at the back, and she wears a long girt chiton; in left hand is a thyrsos, and in right she holds out a dish on which are two large bunches of grapes. Behind the Satyr stands a similar Maenad, and behind the first Maenad a Satyr advances with thyrsos in left hand and an askos of skin in right. Each thyrsos has a projecting spur.
