Description
The illustration shows a pirate attack on a Grecian coastal town. The raiders are taking plundered goods and women captives across a gangplank onto their waiting ship, which has its bow decorated with nautical designs (Poseidon's trident, sea-horses and dolphins). The pirate aboard ship at the far left points to the city on the far right, where a band of men armed with spears and shields is coming to try to rescue the captives and drive off the robbers.
