Presentation scene. A deity enthroned on a low dais is approached by a goddess wearing a simple horned crown and a pleated garment, who leads a human figure in a long garment. The seated deity wears a round cap and a “kaunakes” (flounced garment) and holds a small cup in one hand. Between the two dieties appears a disk with inscribed star and rays set within a crescent.
