Inside, stepping on the groove, a pygmy running left, turning back with shield held out in left hand, spear ready to hurl in right hand. He wears a helmet with knob on top with plume attached. His immediate antagonist is missing, but on the other side (left, in fragment preserved) is a crane in flight (head broken away).
