DESCRIPTION

The goddess Persephone returns from the underworld. She wears a crown and is depicted partially risen from the earth. Hermes, standing beside her, wears a petasos cap and chlamys cloak, and holds a herald's wand (kerykeion) in his hand. Hecate carries a pair of orches and gazes backwards over her shoulder at the goddess. Demeter, on the far right, bears a royal sceptre.
