SUMMARY

Dionysos leads Hephaistos back to Olympos, returning after being cast from heaven as a babe by Hera. Hephaistos rides on the back of a donkey. His feet are depicted as shrunken and malformed. Before him stands Dionysos, and behind a Satyros holding a rhyton (drinking horn) and carrying a wineskin on his back.
