Zeus is seated on a folding stool. He is represented with head
and legs in profile to the right, the body diagonally, to the
same scale as the standing figure. The right forearm is extended
horizontally forward, the hand with extended fingers seen
on the back. The left forearm is extended obliquely upward,
the hand holding a staff. The god has a pointed beard and
short-cropped hair with a wreath. His dress consists of a
chiton and a himation which covers the right upperarm (?).
Athena is represented standing on the lap of Zeus, head and
legs in profile to the right, the body diagonally. Her dress
consists of a peplos and an aigis (?). The aigis is bordered
by a fringe of serpents. The goddess wears a helmet. The right
arm is extended horizontally forward, with clenched fist, the
left arm raised, the hand holding a spear.
There is one other deity on the picture. At the right stands a
goddess, the right forearm raised obliquely upward, the left
forearm extended almost horizontally forward, the hand with
extended fingers seen on the back.
