At center, a bearded figure in a red robe stands facing us, holding a sword in his left hand and a laurel wreath on his head. At either side of him are three robed figures that drift toward him, hovering just above the ground. Just behind them is a rocky hill and the arched entrance to a cave. At upper left a figure lies asleep on the rocks as another holds him. Above, within the arched entrance are many penciled in notations and small quickly sketched figures.
