Notes
Content: Written on border: "Apollo seated on an ocladias sounds his lyre. In front of him is Diana with a bow. Harmony or wingless Victory is about to place a wreath on Apollo. Mercury wearing his petasus or large brimmed hat holds his caduceus. The Demos, personification of Delphi, resembling an agonothete, president of the athletic games, carries a simple baton. From Auserlesene Vasenbilder by Gerhard."
