Detail of Nemesis and the Dioscuri from a painting depicting Heracles in the underworld. Nemesis, goddess of retribution, holds a sword in one hand and scabbard in the other. The twins wear traveller's caps, hold knotted staves and are accompanied by a star--probably representing St Elmo's fire.
This is a drawing of the vase rather than a photograph.
