Side A: Olive-gathering: Three olive-trees in the branches of the centre one is a nude youth seated to left with a stick in his hands, with which he shakes down the olives. Two figures, one on each side, with purple drapery round the loins, are beating the trees with long sticks; the one on the right wears a pilos. At the foot of the tree is a nude youth kneeling to right, picking up the olives, as they fall, into a basket.
Side B: Pholus receiving Heracles: In Greek mythology, Pholus was a wise centaur and friend of Heracles who lived in a cave on or near Mount Pelion. On the left is Pholus to right, carrying a large bough over his left shoulder, from which hang a hare and a fox tied by the forelegs, and a bird tied by its beak; he is laying his hand in that of Heracles, who confronts him. Heracles is bearded, with short embroidered chiton, sword and quiver at girdle, club over left shoulder, from which the lion's skin is suspended. Behind him is Hermes seated to left, bearded, with long hair, fillet, striped embroidered chlamys, petasos, endromides, and caduceus. By the side of Pholus is a hind walking to right.
