At the end of the couch, with right arm on his left shoulder, sits a Maenad with hair gathered in an opisthosphendone, necklace, long girt chiton, flesh painted white. At the other end stands a Maenad in long white chiton and himation with chevron-border over right shoulder, holding out a rhyton in right hand and phiale in left; behind her advances a youthful Satyr with wreath and fawn-skin over left arm, playing the double flute. By the side of the couch is a Satyr seated on the ground to right, looking back with face upturned, left arm resting on a cushion; he wears a wreath. Above are three bunches of grapes, and on the right, the top of a Doric column; below the couch is a plant.
