Apollon and Herakles struggle for the Delphic tripod. Herakles is depicted as a bearded man wearing a lion-skin cloak, and Apollon as a youth with bow in hand. Herakles is supported by Athene who wears a helm and snake-trimmed aigis cloak set with the Gorgon's head. Artemis or the Phthia of Delphoi, stands behind Apollon, holding a plant frond.
