Ten figures watching or participating in a sacrifice in a cave. Above, bearded male, 3/4 view to left. From left to right: draped female facing right, wearing chiton and himation. In her left hand she holds up a short object with what appears to be a spear point. In her right she holds two indistinct objects (vegetable matter?) down by her side (Kore); a draped male figure, seated right on a large rock, left leg raised higher and undraped from knee down. In left hand he holds what seems to be a thyrsos (Dionysos); a draped female figure, body frontal, looking to her right and down at seated male. She wears a peplos, her weight on her right leg, left knee bent. Both arms broken off (Demeter); draped male figure facing left, behind a rock altar. His left leg is raised to help support the weight of an indistinct object (sacrificial victim?) which he holds with both arms. Somewhat smaller scale than other figures; draped female figure, facing left, assisting the former figure. Also smaller scale than surrounding figures; draped female, seated left, watching sacrifice (Nymph); standing draped female, facing left, her left arm rests on hip, her right is held forward, resting on an outcrop of rock (Nymph).
Right edge of cave broken, though there is space for a third Nymph. Below Nymphs, Pan lying on his left side, supporting himself on a wineskin, furry goat legs, bearded, with smile still visible.
Across bottom the dedicatory inscription. Sides scored for rusticated effect. Back heavily worn by foot traffic. Traces of mortar on bottom.
