Side A: Heracles delivers the Erymanthian boar to King Eurystheus as one of his twelve labours. The hero wears a lion-skin cape and has a quiver strapped to his back. He holds the boar upside-down on his shoulder. The terrified king cowers inside a buried pithos jar. The hero's patron-goddess Athena, wearing a crested helm and the serpent-trimmed aegis cloak, and bearing a shield and spear, witnesses the scene.
Side B: Dionysus and Ariadne (not shown).
