DESCRIPTION

Herakles liberates the Titan Prometheus. The Titan is bound by the arms to a rock. The hero stands beside him wearing a lion-skin cape and holding a club. The slain Caucasian eagle plumets to the earth below them. The goddess Persephone, holding a four-headed Eleusinian torch, and a winged, serpent-haired Erinys stand witness.
