Notes
Content: Possibly depicts Glaucus, the fisherman who observed dead fish laid on a certain grass miraculously come back to life. He ate some of the grass and was transformed into a sea god. Glaucus fell in love with the nymph Scylla, but Circe turned Scylla into a monster out of jealousy that she had won Glaucus' love.
