A palaistra scene. In the centre, a bearded paidotribe
wearing a long mantle draped over his left hand. In his hair, he wears a crown of leaves, and in his right hand he is holding a long stick with small, white lateral branches. In front of him, a naked athlete, stepping forward, is swinging two weights in a forward direction. On the extreme left, an athlete, his right hand on his hip and two javelins in his left hand. To the right of the paidotribe
, an athlete arrives at a run. On the far right, another young man with a long mantle, a wreath in his hair and a long staff in his right hand. The leaves of the wreath and the staff are white.
