A procession of gods arrive on Mount Pelion to attend the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. From left to right the figures are three Nymphs, Themis, the centaur Chiron, Hebe, Dionysus, Leto and Chariclo. Themis holds a sceptre, Chiron a branch hung with the bounty of the hunt--hares and a deer--, and Dionysus a vine. The centaur is clothed in a short chiton and has the full body of man, including legs and feet, with the torso and rear legs of a horse extending from his rump.
