Apollon and Artemis rush to the aide of their mother Leto, who has been seized by the lustful giant Tityos. The god, who has a bow and quiver slung to his back, tries to pull Leto free of the giant's grasp. Artemis stands on the other side with one hand raised, and the other holding a bow. The giant himself wrestles Leto around the waist, in an attempt to carry her off and ravish her.
