Warp of linen, ground of natural colored linen with designs mostly in purple wool and a few details in red wool. Design consists of a band that contains connected roundels, which enclose dancers and hares. The dancers resemble figures in Dionysiac scenes. A bird outside the area with connected circles is at one end of the band. Areas with looped weft are on both sides outside the design area.
