In the center a woman stands beside a chair and ties a belt around her chiton; she raises the overfold of the chiton, which will cover the belt, with her forearms and teeth. Facing her is a maid who holds a fillet or belt and a candle (?). Behind her another woman - perhaps a maid or her mother - presents an alabastron of perfumed oil.
