Fragment from the centre of a rectangular plaque of translucent deep purple and opaque white cameo glass. The decoration, in white, shows two figures. On the left is part of a draped figure, the drapery billowing. On the right is, perhaps, the lower torso and upper thighs of a figure, apparently identified as a satyr by his tail. Between the figures is a pole-like object. This may show a Dionysiac scene, in which case the figure on th left would be a maenad, and the pole-like object would be a thyrsus.

The colour and thickness of this fragment suggest that it may well be part of the same plaque as 2005.8-3.6 and 1868.5-1.143.
