DESCRIPTION

Detail of the three Judges of the Dead from a depiction of the underworld. Rhadamanthys, on the right, wears a Phrygian cap and robe, and holds a royal sceptre. Minos enthroned in the centre holds a royal sceptre and is crowned with a wreath (of asphodel?). The elderly Aeacus is seated on a stool to the left, and holds a staff.

This is a drawing of the vase rather than a photograph.
