(a) In the centre is Dionysos seated to right, beardless, with long curls, wreath, thyrsos in left hand, on the rock beneath him a white himation; he looks back at Ariadne, who stands to right, with hair in bunch at back, radiated ampyx, long embroidered chiton with broad stripe down the front and border of wave-pattern and rays. Behind her is a Satyr advancing to right, with right hand raised to back of head. Before Dionysos is another Satyr stooping forward, with right hand on Dionysos' shoulder, and left extended; both Satyrs wear wreaths. Behind the last Satyr is a Maenad to right looking back, with radiated ampyx, earrings, necklace, bracelets, long girt chiton with radiated border; between her and the Satyr is a cluster of grapes.
(b) In the centre is Nike to right, with hair in knot and long girt chiton leaving right shoulder bare, extending both hands to an ephebos wrapped in himation, who advances right hand to meet hers; behind Nike is a similar ephebos with right hand extended.
