(Possibly Zeus, Hera, Hermes and Apollo?) Rocky ground line indicated by light incisions over glaze; between the two youths, a plant. Relief contour for profiles and napes; some brown inner drawing; white, yellowed over, for the ribbon which ties Apollos' wreath, and for the berries on the laurel spray.
