Dionysos battles the Gigante Eurytos. The god, crowned with a wreath of leaves, and with a small panther sitting on his arm, leaps upon the fallen giant Eurytos with his spear. The giant lies prone trapped in the coils of serpent (presumably summoned to attack him by the god). A second giant (not shown) thrusts his spear at Dionysos.
